about us
The World Museum of Mining preserves the rich historical legacy of mining and the related social and cultural heritage of Butte, Montana. It is one of a few museums in the world located on an actual mine yard. The 44 acre museum exhibits more than a century of American history and brings it to life. Explore more than 50 structures ranging from the 100 foot high headframe of the Orphan Girl Mine to the many buildings of Hell Roarin' Gulch, a turn of the century mining village. While at the museum, descend 65 feet underground on a guided mine tour. Spend an afternoon or a full day absorbed in the unfolding history!
