Description

Now open 7-days! Limited visitor capacities and Covid restrictions are in place. The Mines Museum (formerly the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum) is home to one of the state’s two Goodwill moon rocks collected during the Apollo 17 mission. It was started in 1874 and displays mineral, fossil, gemstone, meteorite, and historic mining artifact exhibits on two floors. The museum serves as the state repository for Colorado’s mineral heritage. Visit the newly remodeled and awesome gift shop at the main entrance to the museum. And check out the realistic mine on the downstairs floor which has fluorescent minerals on display.
