Tonopah Queen of the Silver Camps is home to the Tonopah Mining Museum. The 100 acre mining park and museum is dedicated to preserving Nevada's rich mining history.

Visitors are free to roam around and explore the many historic buildings and artifacts. An underground tunnel has been restored where you can look down the shaft into the richest mine in the Tonopah District.

The park also contains the last remaining structure, a trestle, from the Tonopah and Goldfield Railroad. Half the fun of exploring the park is discovering interesting things around each corner.

The museum has lots to offer for history buffs or is a great place to spend the day and learn about mining in the Silver State.

Go underground through the Burro Tunnel in one of the mines, where visitors step into a steel cage to look into the 500-foot-deep stope. Enjoy your time in historic Tonopah, the "Queen of the Silver Camps" and imagine what it was like in the early 1900s.
