Where are we going today?

The Silver Valley is the richest silver mining region in the world. In just one hundred twenty years, over 1.1 BILLION ounces of silver have been produced from mines in this valley. The museum captures the impact of mining history with artifacts and exhibits depicting the hardships, toils and home life of the period. An exhibit of photographs and commissioned paintings helps bring the reality of those early days to light. A selection of video programs are shown daily in the thirty seat theater on a four by six foot projection TV system.
