I am still so very very sad that the Mining Museum is closed. I absolutely loved this place. The displays were wonderfully educational for children(and adults) and the gift shop had lot of wonderful things to buy that were well worth the price. I wear my Amethyst jewelry from the Four Peaks a lot. A famous writer said you should always give things of nature, something you made or something useful. And I say educational. Sure would love to be shopping in the gift shop. Please bring back the Museum!
