Tommyknockers and Flickering Candles Tasting Event

Book Now

February 5,2015

The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum is bringing back its annual wine tasting.  This tradition was melded with our much-loved Miner's Ball some years ago, but we feel that it deserves its own special day.

This Friday, February 13th, 2015 we invite you to sample delicious wines, beer, appetizers, and chocolates while touring the Museum.  In addition to our Colorado drink and food selections, we will also feature wines produced in mining regions all over the world.  In honor of this spooky day (Friday the 13th) we will be embracing mining superstitions including tommyknockers, flickering candles, and whistling underground.  Come join us in the fun!

Ticket Prices: $35 | $30 for Museum Members.

First 150 guests receive a free logo wine glass!
