225 North Gate Blvd  Colorado Springs CO 80921

The Western Museum of Mining and Industry is conveniently located just off I25 at exit 156 (North Gate Blvd).  Head East and make the first right, where you will immediately be transported back to a slower, less developed time.  Notice the Historic Reynolds Ranch House as you enter, then travel over Smith Creek and be sure to look for deer and other wild life. You'll pass the original, hundred year old Apple Orchard on your right, and the classic Reynolds Ranch Hay Barn on your left. As you drive past the 1920 Osgood Steam Shovel, park and come inside to experience a step back in history.  We look forward to seeing you.
