Mining History of Butte

After living here for over a decade, we finally went to the Mining Museum. It was more extensive than we thought. Very interesting set up with a ton of artifacts. We did not go through the separate underground mine tour, however there are displays showing some of the activities that went on underground. The photos here show a good deal of the mining not the village areas displays.
