“The Museum”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Was very interesting and the lady at the desk was very knowledgeable about the museum. It is very interesting how Bisbee got started as a town because of the mines. I couldn't go upstairs because the elevator was broke and that disappointed me.

“great value”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Very informative and friendly. Staff cared about the city and were a wealth of information. Enjoyed chatting with them. Unfortunately they recommended the Copper Queen and that place is a disaster.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

It was interesting to tour the museum and to see how the mine affected the entire community. Lots to see and read so don't try to rush through.
There is a charge to enter so be prepared.

“Educational with Great Mineral Display”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The docent gave us an excellent introduction to some interesting historical facts about Bisbee, both the town itself as well as the mining history. The museum's displays are excellent and gives some worthwhile insight into mining and being a miner. The mineral display is the best I've ever seen.
