What is there to do?

The World Museum of Mining was founded in 1963 when the close of Butte's mining heyday was less than two decades away. In the end Butte Montana experienced a century of hardrock mining and earned the reputation of being home to one of the world's most productive copper mines of all time.

The Museum exists to preserve the enduring history of Butte and the legacy of its rich mining and cultural heritage.
