Fodor's Review

In the Old Helper Hotel in the town's National Historic District, this museum is a treasure, and doubles as a visitor center. A labyrinth of rooms spread over three stories depict everyday activities of Helper's past, and include uncountable trinkets, toys, clothing, and tools from the various businesses and homes here. Incredible photographs and paintings put a face on Helper's history (along with an anachronistic painting of R2-D2 of Star Wars fame), and there's

an outdoor exhibit of railroad and mining equipment. Be sure to pick up your free bag of coal.
