Mining Museum Hosts Weekend Fun
The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (NMFHM) is excited to hold its annual Family Fun Day during Leadville’s Boom Days festival on Saturday, Aug. 4. The musuem will be hosting activities outside and inside the museum from 3 – 5 p.m. for visitors.
Outside of the museum, their popular free gold panning event returns. This was very popular last year, so they’ve added an extra panning station this year. This activity offers kids the opportunity to try their panning skills in search of $500 worth of real gold!
Additional activities will be offered inside the museum with paid admission; children are free with at least one paid adult admission (per family). Activities include create a crystal, paint a peace rock, and dress up like a miner, rock hound with real geologists and make fun crafts. This year, for the first time, the NMFHM is excited to offer “Meet a Real Hero.” Members of the Front Range Mine Rescue Team will be demonstrating what they do to save lives when miners are trapped in a mine. Admission includes access to the entire museum.
