Jacob's Review:
   This is a much better way to learn history than sitting a classroom. Mom told me that the museum has alot of history, and I believe it. We looked at plenty of exhibits relating to coal. Although diamonds are better, learning about the importance of coal was cool.

Dad's Notes:
   Learning about mining didn't seem like something I would like, but I always try to be open minded, so that I can take my children to see a variety of sites.

   This was a very educational and enjoyable experience for both of us. We learned about the history of the coal industry, which was quite interesting. The museum itself has a history dating back to the 1970s. There are more than 4,000 artifacts within this museum, and they related to various topics including the history of Colorado, industrial technology, the environment and geology, not to mention mining. We took the tour, which was very informative. The admission prices were very reasonable, especially considering everything you got to see. We also went on a day when the farmer's market was going on, so we bought tons fresh vegetables that were top quality and ideal for me to cook with. We even bought some bread, which was delicious and fresh.
