Western Mining & Railroad Museum Review

The Western Mining & Railroad Museum, which is in the Old Helper Hotel in Helper's National Historic District, is a treasure, and doubles as a visitor center. Elaborate model trains make their rounds through a simulated coal mine, and exhibits show the history of mining. Rooms depict everyday activities of Helper's past, and include uncountable trinkets, toys, clothing, and tools from the various businesses and homes situated here. Incredible photographs and paintings put a face on Helper's history, and there's an outdoor exhibit of railroad and mining equipment. Be sure to pick up your free bag of coal.
