Not Many People Realize That Colorado Is Home To An Underground Mining Museum

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, mining played a HUGE role in Colorado’s economy, with a good percentage of new residents moving here to quarry. While most Coloradans know this already, few have ever experienced what this line of work was really like for early residents, which is why we love and recommend visiting this underground Colorado mining museum.
