Very interesting but small museum. Don't miss the guided tour because it's the highlight of this place. Our guide, Tom Tomson, was amazing. His knowledge of Colorado mining and the mining industry in general was incredible. Wish the blacksmith shop was operating.

What a terrific find! This really is all about the history of mining. If you go for the tour it's even extra awesome. They actually have working steam machines that they show you how they work (now with compressed air) our tour guide was a geologist by trade and had a passion for this place which made our tour extra special.

About Western Museum of Mining and Industry

More than 5,000 artifacts. A 27-acre campus and 6,000-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. Discussions on topics revolving around the Industrial Revolution and mining are led by appointed speakers to educate visitors.
