Boom Days

August 8,2018

Boom Days was amazing this year! Over 100 people in attendance. We were thrilled to host a Family Fun day at the museum with 6 unique activities for kids and parents, including making crystals, rock hounding, dress like a miner photo booth and peace rock painting. 


We want to say a special thank you to our volunteers who came out to support us! 

With another special thank you to the Colorado Front Range Mine Rescue Team!
