“Eclectic small museum - enlightening for children to see relics like typewriters and 100 year old dental tools.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was a small, old but very eclectic old museum that just can't be compared to modern museums. It took us 20 minutes to wander through the 2 aisles with 3 small children in tow, who were rather curious about some of the 19th and early 20th century every day items that were on display.

“Fascinating History of a Dying Mining Town”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Well worth a visit to Roslyn for this and a quick lunch. The town itself is not much, but this little museum has a great and very friendly staff and tons of great pictures and artifacts from when this was a buzzing little mining town.

“Full of history”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The museum is a fun spot to check out all the local history of the coal mining town of Roslyn. The volunteers are very friendly and have a lot of great stories. It includes some recent history from the filming of Northern Exposure.

“Roslyn Historical Museum”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

A charming collection of historical memorabilia from the late 19th and early 20th century gathered so a visitor can find nostalgic and sometimes terrifying objects and incidents of the town's history.
