This museum is well worth the visit. It is clean, well organized, and staff is very knowledgable. This museum primary covers mining in the Rocky Mountains but dies exhibit minerals from all over the world.
A well presented museum, open on Mondays as well as the rest of the week. Supported by donations and volunteer staff. You can spend anywhere from an hour to several hours depending on your interest level.

If you want to understand the history of gold and silver mining in the area, this is the place to go. Lots of artifacts from the golden years and a big exhibit from the molybdenum mine that is still operating a couple of miles away. Well worth a visit. Allow about 2 hours

It's interactive. It's good for the whole family. It's educating yet so much fun! If you come to Leadville- you NEED to come see this. Haven't seen mining museum- haven't seen Leadville!
