The Copper Range Historical Museum’s collection of displays, artifacts, and photos provides visitors with a sense of what life was like for copper miners and their families during the copper boom years in the late 19th and early- to mid-20th centuries.
Copper Range Historical Museum hours are noon to 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday, June 4 through October 1. The museum is closed on Mondays in June and September. A $1 donation is suggested; children and museum members are admitted free.
