Creede Underground Mining Museum

Creede Underground Mining Museum

This museum was created starting in 1990, and mined by local Creede miners. The concept of an underground mine started with Bob Louth in 1976, when he proposed building an underground fire station. This project was so well accepted that the local citizens decided to build an underground mining museum. This mine was never used in the commercial production of silver. Since 1992, they have had more than 20,000 visitors.


The guided tours are given by retired miners, there is also a self-guided CD tour available.


The museum has on display real mining equipment. Because it is completely underground, be sure to bring a jacket no matter what time of year it is!
