Western Week at Mines Museum of Earth Science

Location & Contact Information


Mosey on over to the Golden Visitor Center, and ask them to steer you to Mines Museum of Earth Science, over yonder. Visit for a spell and gander at what gave all manner of cowpoke a fever somethin’ fierce: gold. We have an ace high collection of silver, gold coins, jewels, and other valuables (set your eyes on two moon rocks while you’re waterin’ your horse).  Don’t be a tenderfoot…we’re open 9:00 am until 4:00 pm Monday through Saturday and on Sundays 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Best part is, it won’t cost a nickel to stop by and see us. We’re fixin’ to show you a good time, so scoot on over and say, “Howdy” – just be sure to brush off your boots!
