About The World Museum of Mining

We invite you to live the mining & cultural history of Butte during the turn of the century. Located on an actual mine yard, we offer fifty primary exhibit buildings, countless artifacts & an underground mine tour that takes you 65 feet deep into the Orphan Girl mine. A Miners' Memorial Wall & Remembering Garden honors over 2,500 men killed in mining related accidents. Spend a couple of hours or an entire day!
