Pop-Up Mining Exhibit

May 1, 2018 - Dec 1, 2018


This mining exhibit was curated by the Western Museum of Mining and Industry in Colorado Springs! You'll see unique personal items and tools used by miners, assayer's business documents, ore specimens and more. You'll get a sense of what work was like in the Colorado mines and how mined ore was valued in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Stay tuned for a more in-depth look at Colorado's mining history in our upcoming permanent mining exhibit, James Joseph Brown & the Peoples' Quest for Gold!
