Fodor's Review

In the center of sleepy downtown Grants, the small New Mexico Mining Museum shares quarters with the chamber of commerce right off the main drag, Santa Fe Avenue. On the ground level are charts, photos, gems, and minerals, and depictions of uranium-mining life in the region—this area is free. After paying admission, an elevator drops you down a few feet into the building's basement, where you can take a self-guided tour of an ersatz mine, and some real mining equipment and related exhibits.
