Our nonprofit is committed to the care of Nugget & Chism, and invests over $5,000 annually in feed, veterinarian care, and staff time. If you'd like to become a "Burro Buddy" and help us with a small donation of just $30 per year to assist with the cost of having these animals in our community, please call or email Dave Futey at 719.488.0880, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration!
The mission of the Western Museum of Mining and Industry is to educate the public about the history and continuing contributions of mining in the American West through its collection, restoration, exhibition and interpretation of artifacts related to mining, metallurgy and their support industries. Accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1979, WMMI is the only accredited mining museum in the Western United States and one of only three accredited museums in the Pikes Peak Region. The AAM awarded WMMI subsequent accreditation in 2004.
