National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum

Located in a 70,000-square-foot school built during the 19th century silver boom, this museum offers twelve exhibit rooms portraying the history of mining from the Bronze Age through the present. There is also a replicated underground hard-rock mine to explore, complete with drills, ore cars, mine-gauge track, and chutes.
