As a visitor to The Minnesota Museum of Mining, you will have the rare opportunity to climb aboard historic equipment used to mine the Mesabi Range's rich iron ore. Your experience will begin at the very unique stone castle, constructed in 1933. Browse the Gift Shop, and view the first of many displays of mining history inside the Castle. Then move outside to tour the many outdoor displays located around the beautiful Museum grounds. Climb aboard mining trucks, see the 1907 steam locomotive, and tour replicas of an underground mine and mining town!
