Located on the actual Orphan Girl Mine, The World Museum of Mining in Butte, Montana is a one-of-a-kind landmark that offers visitors a glimpse into the history of mining and the streets of an authentic reproduction of a mining camp, as well as experiencing the actual mine itself. Founded in 1963, a short seven years after the Orphan Girl mine ceased operation, this amazing place honors and remembers those who lived and died while mining for a living.
It boasts a realistic, hands-on mining experience for guests by featuring actual, original equipment and countless artifacts in the 50 exhibit buildings and 66 primary exhibits in the yard, and in Hell Roarin Gulch a reproduction of an 1890s mining town that was built by mostly volunteers from the 1960s to the 1980s. Some buildings in Hell Roarin Gulch were constructed from historic wood brought in from other mining sites, and several other structures, such as the schoolhouse, two churches and the superintendents quarters, were brought here as complete, historic buildings and perhaps some of their resident spirits came along.
The Orphan Girl Mine was in operation from 1875 until 1956, and the workers mined for copper, zinc, silver and gold over those many years. It was a key to Buttes economy for many decades. Visitors today are able to go sixty-five feet down into the mine and view original machinery that was used when the mine was operational, including the headframe, the cage in the Hoist House, ore bins and a Lorry rail car.
There is also a memorial to the 2,500 men who lost their lives within the Silver Bow Mining District since 1865. The tribute is made up of four granite slab walls with the names of the lost inscribed on them, paying homage to those miners who worked and perished on the job.
Come with us to investigate The World Museum of Mining and maybe youll be fortunate enough to learn about so much more about mining from the past (and passed) miners and citizens themselves.
Are you ready to step back in time and experience the difficult life of a copper miner? Working in harsh conditions for long hours underground, unfortunately many miners did not make it home from work. The dangers of the mines caused many different types of accidents in which those who labored perished but who may still linger here to tell their story.
Join us and explore the history of mining by investigating The Orphan Girl Mine exhibit as well as the town of Hell Roarin Gulch, both of which feature original equipment used in the mine, as well as numerous artifacts of the people who called it home.
Are there spirits attached to the mine, to the land, or even the artifacts themselves? Perhaps all the residual energy from when the mine was in operation still plays back today, resulting in guests and staff hearing disembodied voices or seeing apparitions.
Maybe youll encounter the man in a yellow slicker who has been seen standing near the Chinese Apothecary and the Pawn Shop and he might try to prevent you from taking a picture by turning off your camera. Possibly youll hear the church bells ringing even when they are not engaged; or get an eerie vibe from one of the dolls on display possibly haunted by a child who loved it.
There are plenty of stories to be told at the World Museum of Mining if you are willing and able to listen. Climb into the cage that took the miners to the depths of the earth. Walk down the streets of the recreated mining camp. The possibilities for investigation are endless. Are you ready to go off on your own and find out who still may be here, waiting to talk to you?
