Fodor's Review

This museum is housed in rooms that modern miners blasted out of solid rock to commemorate the lives of 1880s-era miners. Exhibits tracing the history of mining reveal the difference between a winze (reinforced shaft leading straight down) and a windlass (hand-operated hoist). In summer, there are guided tours at 10 and 3 daily, but before 2:15 pm you can also take a self-guided audio tour.
