Liked all the use of large photos, lifesized models of miners and interior mine rooms, etc. Gorgeous examples of minerals found in mine pockets. Clear explanations of times and mining life.

Too bad the museum has to charge (I'm from the Washington DC area and most of our museums are free), but the first class exhibition (produced with help from the Smithsonian Institution) covered the history well.

I believe it cost us $7 to enter the museum. If you enjoy history, I think you will enjoy the museum. I'm not big into mining but am very curious about life in the late 1800s/early 1900s. I enjoyed seeing the old photos and mining gear. We stayed at the Copper Queen, so there was no excuse not to check out the museum. It is right across the street.

We were surprised at the quality, and content, of the displays in the mining museum. An excellent review of the history of Bisbee mining. Start your visit here before you take in any of the other attractions in Bisbee.

Was a very informative tour, several floors of how the miners worked, and the work conditions. Lots of Bisbee History when the mine was Booming! Will stop by next visit for longer stay.
