Western Museum of Mining and Industry

The mining museum was a hit with the boys. It's full of lots of machinery, dynamite displays and small working mining models. Also, we panned for gold and came up with a bit of gold ore. Fun, but we won't be getting rich anytime soon. The museum has a re-constructed underground mine section inside, complete with rail tracks, mine carts, and blasting equipment and there was lots of hands-on stuff. Perfect for the boys.
