Stopped here to meet some friends and travel on to ely and we ended up spending a couple hours looking at the sites and reminiscing with friends. A very nice little free attraction

Small but very nice museum of area located in old depot. There is a nice train outside that is repainted with some cars and caboose that kids love plating on.

Very helpful staff as I have an issue with not just enclosed spaces and elevators but people touching me. They made sure I was comfortable for the trip up and down to the mines for the tour. Excellent visit!

Whether you're interested in the history of the area or a railroad fan, the museum is worth a visit. A DM&IR K class 2-8-0 steam locomotive and its tender, two passenger cars and a caboose are on display.

Very nice little museum. It highlights the mining, settling, and early tourism around Lake Vermillion.
