This is a "well worth the time" museum. Great for everyone. Easily navigated with something for every age group. Quite the gem for Leadville.

Leadville has an outstanding history of miners, gamblers, 'fancy women', gunfighters, entertainers at the opera house. The mining museum is part of this wonderful picture.

“lotsa rocks!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

the best mineral sample exhibits I have ever seen--lots of mining stuff, including a walk-through simulated underground mine--well worth the time it took to walk through
