Western Museum of Mining and Industry Members include donors from more than 20 states who share a loyal dedication to our mission and educational programs. Their generous contributions help support the preservation of our vast collection of artifacts and machinery, keep the extensive grounds well-maintained and accessible for visitors, and ensure that the historic interpretation and educational activities are authentic and accessible.

Since its founding in 1970, the Western Museum of Mining and Industry has made mining history come alive for scores of visitors. Maintaining the tradition of carefully preserved machinery and hands-on educational programs requires the support of many contributors. Museum membership offers you the exclusive opportunity to be part of this tradition.
