Orphan Girl Mine/World Exhibit Of Mining

Underground mine tour as well as a small town exhibit are well worth the money. Mineral exhibit and other smaller exhibits too.

The World Museum of Mining features a fallen miner memorial garden, a recreated 1890s mining town, and an "Underground Mining Exhibit" in a simulated mine.
