The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum is a federally chartered non-profit corporation, but we do not receive govenrment support. Our operations and growth depend entirely on contributions, memberships, admissions, and gift shop sales. We need your support to conserve the great heritage of the mining industry, and to inform and educate the public on the importance of mining in our everyday lives.


Your donation will:


  • Help support ongoing care and cataloging of our collections
  • Maintain and expand our exhibits
  • Support our Induction Banquet for the National Mining Hall of Fame
  • Help us reach an important goal in our endowment campaign
  • Provide support for daily operations


Any size donation is useful. We also have a number of affordable membership levels available that allow you to donate and receive the benefits of museum membership. Finally, our Logo Program provides a way for Corporate Sponsors to donate and receive acknowledgement at both the museum and on our website on the Online Wall of Honors.
