What a wonderful library, friendly staff and a good selection of books, videos and magazines. The staff are friendly and helpful, the books are well cared for. They have a temporary card option for visitors. We really enjoyed our visit to the library.

The museum is simple but worth visiting to know the history of this charming city. During the visit, we had a patient guide.

This is a really great excursion. Operated by donation it is well worth the trip. Lots of history about the mine. Lots of other neat things to do and see as well.
