Be sure to schedule your visit so that you can take the guided tour. The exhibits are interesting, but you will get way more out of your visit by hearing the tour guide's narrative.

From Our Editors

More than 4,000 artifacts. A 27-acre campus and 5,000-volume research library. These numbers just begin to describe the massive collection gathered at Western Museum of Mining and Industry. The institution's staff delve into history as miner's burrow into the ground, finding and preserving the stories and items that fueled the industrial revolution. The standing collection focuses largely on artifacts; visitors can see operating steam engines or pan for gold.

The venue also regularly hosts special presentations in its multipurpose center, featuring events in the past such as The Gold King's Legacy, an exploration of Winfield Scott Stratton's Cripple Creek mining operation. Some events also include the Pikes Peak Gem and Mineral Show, the Reynolds Ranch Harvest Festival, and Haunted Mines. Discussions on topics revolving around the Industrial Revolution and mining are led by appointed speakers to educate visitors.
