Most Montanans Have Never Heard Of This Fascinating Mining Museum

We’ve got some pretty impressive museums here in Montana, including the world famous Museum of the Rockies. But unless you’ve spent a lot of time in Butte, you may not have heard of the World Museum of Mining, which is one of the few museums in the world located on an actual mine yard.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
