Bryan Kahtava: Left Behind in the Mines

Featured Exhibit: Bryan Kahtava “Left Behind in the Mines”

When working mines were abandoned, miners often left things behind when they departed. Clothing, food cans, bottles, and boxes, improvised equipment, personal items and much more. This intriguing exhibit features artifacts from Historian/Explorer Bryan Kahtava’s extensive personal collection of “stuff” that was left underground in western mines. The artifacts on display challenge some long-held views of life underground, especially in regard to diet and leisure time. “Left Behind in the Mines” is open when the museum is open and is included with your admission.


Open now through February 2023.
