This place is huge, lot's of things to learn and explore! Coin operated machines showing how mining worked and looked like under ground! And you get the chance to see how folks lived back in the mining days in Butte, MT.!

We opted to take the 100-ft underground mining tour and it was well worth the cost of admission. Our guide, who's also an 8th grade teacher, was excellent and informative. After the tour, one can meander through the re-creation of an 1890s mining town.

This was amazing! We could explore all kinds of rocks and I took my time to enjoy them. Some of these stones could be put in the dark and it showed light in different colors. It was so fascinating. This is a must see!

We apologize that you did not enjoy the Scarecrow Festival. Weather this season has certainly taken a toll on a few of our scarecrows. This festival is actually a way for local high school freshman to learn about Butte during selected time periods. We will certainly take into account your suggestion of placing the scarecrows elsewhere if the festival happens again. WMM is considering making this the last year of the scarecrows as they are so hard to stay on top of with bad weather. Thanks for visiting, and we hope you'll visit again when the scarecrows aren't "hanging" around.
