Fodor's Review

This large, well-kept museum houses an assortment of mining memorabilia, minerals, and local artifacts, including walk-in mining-shaft replicas. The museum also includes the old San Jaun County Jail, built in 1902. Here you can get a glimpse of turn-of-the-20th-century life in the region.
