Direct beneficiaries per year: Attendance at the World Museum of Mining has steadily increased over the last three years and with the proper care of the exhibits and artifacts we will have the ability to continue to provide an authentic historical venue for those interested in mining and cultural. Additionally we host hundreds of school aged children on their yearly field trips. Our education program provides the students and teaches materials to use prior to and after their trip to ensure the students receive the best educational experience possible.

Mission:
To Preserve the Rich Historical Legacy of Mining and the Related Culture of Butte, Montana and the Surrounding Region, and to Promote this Significant Mining Heritage by Educating the Public with a Perspective Toward Total Family Interest.
Results:
The World Museum of Mining is currently fundraising to make some much needed repairs to our exterior exhibit buildings. The buildings, exhibits themselves, house thousands of unique and one of a kind artifacts telling the story of mining and the diverse culture of Butte. During October 2010 we were successful in raising adequate funds to repair the roof on the School House building and our Artifact Processing Center.
