Founded in 1963, the World Museum of Mining is an outdoor museum dedicated to preserving the enduring history of Butte, Montana and the legacy of its rich mining and cultural heritage. Butte was a prolific mining town for a century, and was home to one of the world’s most productive copper mines of all time. The museum is located on an actual mine yard, named the Orphan Girl Mine. The museum offers over fifty exhibit buildings, numerous artifacts in the mine yard that tell the history of mining and its influence on the town of Butte. Underground mine tours are also offered to visitors. Additionally, the museum maintains a photo archive that holds over 22,000 photographs, negatives, and glass plate negatives that depict mining history.

    Easygoing and unique

    Jeanette at the Mining Museum was wonderful to work with from the early days of our long distance planning, to navigating a pandemic, to the big day itself. This venue was exactly what we were looking for with lots of unique photo opportunities and options of sites to hold the ceremony.

    My Dream Day

    After my husband proposed to me we knew that we wanted to have a wedding in an area that had never been used before. We are both history buffs and love everything BUTTE! While talking with Jeanette one day, we decided that we wanted a true Butte wedding. We thought about having the wedding under the Orphan Girl. After thinking about it we decided to have the wedding 100ft below the base of of headframe in the 100ft level of the Orphan Girl Mine. This idea was met with excitement and support, the planning started that day. The day of our wedding came and there was so much rain...We had flash flood warnings and hail. Thank god we were having our ceremony Underground! The sun came out right before we went into the portal and allowed us my favorite family picture, with hard hats and all! Our ceremony was amazing! It was a cozy ceremony that included our immediate family members. Everyone loved the idea! We all wore hard hats and our family members got to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity with us! Jeanette officiated the ceremony which allowed us to completely customize everything about it. We also took all of our wedding pictures at Hell Roaring Gulch and on/under the Orphan Girl Headframe. After the wedding we had our reception in the hoist house! Our awesome cook made the most amazing tacos and and we had enough room for our friends to come join the dinner. It was so cool to be surrounded by the hoist house equipment and give everyone an experience that they would never forget. My husband and I were the first to have our wedding at the 100ft level of the Orphan Girl Mine and we encourage you to think of the World Museum of Mining when you are thinking of planning your special day.

    Amazing. Everything went smoothly. Staff was helpful and easy to contact.

    We had what I would describe as the perfect experience! The day went perfectly with zero problems. We were able to meet with staff and view the location multiple times. Everyone was helpful, responded quickly and it made our day absolutely perfect.
