Spend the day exploring an actual mine yard!

The World Museum of Mining is one of the few museums in the world located on an actual mine yard, the Orphan Girl Mine. With 50 exhibit buildings, countless artifacts, and 66 primary exhibits in the mine yard, you can spend from a couple of hours to an entire day lost in the unfolding story.

By walking the streets of Hell Roarin’ Gulch and venturing to the depths of the Orphan Girl Mine, you can almost see their blackened faces and hear their exhausted sighs at the conclusion of the workday.

Snow or frost can delay Museum opening hours. All indoor portions of the Museum are closed due to social distancing. 90% of the Museum is still accessible.

Number of tickets sold is limited throughout the day. Please purchase your tickets in advance online.

General admission is included with the purchase of an Underground Tour.
