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 ancestors hew a living out of Colorado's hard rock, and then take a special tour of our unique 1890's Stamp Mill Gold Refinery. Included with admission.

Adults, $8; Military/AAA, $7; Seniors/Students, $6; Children 3-12, $4; Children under 3 and Museum Members, FREE.
