Mission Statement

Established in 1970, the Western Museum of Mining and Industry (WMMI) is a private nonprofit, 501(c) 3 whose mission is to preserve, collect and interpret the rich mining history and related industries of Colorado and the American West.


Unique to WMMI is the actual operation of its carefully restored multi-ton steam engines and mining machines. The emphasis of the museum's collections is on the technology and technological history of mining and metallurgy, as well as the social history of the American West. Over 4,000 artifacts are on display at the 27-acre indoor/outdoor exhibit site, which includes a working hoist house; mine blacksmith shop; ten stamp mill; and multi-purpose center with exhibits, theater and a 13,000 volume research library. WMMI has been accredited by the American Association of Museums (one of only three Colorado Springs museums to hold this honor) since 1979, and is the only accredited mining museum in the western United States.
