Once the corporate headquarters of the Copper Queen Mining Company, this Smithsonian Affiliate is at the center of town’s historic district and at the heart of its history - recording, reflecting, and retelling Bisbee’s storied past in a setting of fun and interactive exhibits.
“Digging In” tells the story of copper… from a uniquely Bisbee perspective. Smithsonian designed, it introduces us to the copper miners and their work.
“Urban Outpost on the Frontier” tells of Bisbee’s growth into one of the West’s preeminent, and one of its wealthiest, mining towns.
