This was a very cool piece of history. The museum had a very nice man answering questions and taking the time to tell us stories and his experiences over the years. Amazing to think the people did all that so many decades ago!

We learned more from the woman who worked there than anything else! Not many people go here. My family was the only one there at the time and my husband and son got a one on one history lesson for about half an hour and loved it. The museum is one big room. Not everything is labeled.

The walk is to the mine was lovely. The people were very knowledgeable and gave us a nice talk. I felt the displays need to be better labeled. I had no idea what some of the things were. Would have like to have seen more displays of the mining industry in the 30's. Perhaps some displays that miners and conditions.

We always take or send visitors here. Last time I was up it was staffed by volunteers, so check hours. It's just around a corner from downtown Juneau but instntly puts you in another world. It offers many historical items and exhibits.

This is an ok visit to self described , half underground, Juneau's past hard - rock mining scene. An old adit put with the past mining scenes with a live demonstration of drills and techniques
