This museum is well stocked and pleasantly laid out. Definitely worth the entrance fee. The helpers in the museum are great too. We learned alot on our visit here in the great town of Bisbee.

A visit to Bisbee, Arizona would be incomplete without a visit to the Bisbee Mining & Historical Museum historically located in the original head office of one of the original mining companies.

One is welcomed warmly by a string of assorted docent volunteers who provide introduction to the history of the town and the museum prior to embarking on the tour. The museum itself is extremely well curated providing an entertaining and informative history of the town past and present with a vast selection of large scale minerals on display as well as the original company's paneled board room.

History well displayed and well worth visiting and exploring!

Clear and concise historical displays are accented with a research library and helpful docents. The Smithsonian offers an exhibit of exceptional Bisbee mineral specimens in the upper story of the museum.
