• New Mexico Mining Museum - Grants, New Mexico

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Uranium mining fueled the economy of this community for many years, and this little museum pays tribute to that industry, as well as the history of the area. The artifacts, including Native American crafts, date back over a millennium, and also include a gemstone collection from all over the world. But the highlight is a simulated trip down into a mine, with a cage-style elevator ride into the basement where a mine is duplicated.
