If you are looking for a day to visit the WMMI, today is the day! The machines are turned on! Huge and loud, it is educational science at its best!

Hear the shrill whistle of the Western Museum of Mining & Industry's 1928 Osgood Steam Shovel.

Learn how compressed air locomotives replaced the poor mule in hauling mountains of ore, and then see one rumble out of the past and down the track!

Listen to the stories describing the dangers of being a mill man.

Understand how industrial revolution technology helped our ancestor's hew a living out of Colorado's hard rock, and then brace yourself as the kinetic energy of our 1890's machinery comes alive.

Activities are included with regular admission.

Children 3-12: $4
