Boy Scouts who are working on or have earned the Mining in Society Merit Badge receive free admission to the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum! Troop visits welcome. Please call ahead if possible and we will have a Mining in Society scavenger hunt, pencils, and clipboards ready for your visit. With enough advance notice, we may be able to schedule a guided tour by a miner. Contact our Educational Programming & Events Coordinator at 719-486-1229 to make arrangements.
