Missouri Mines State Historic Site

See Photo Location

The site consists of the milling complex used by St. Joe Minerals Corporation in the days when Missouri’s Lead Belt produced nearly 80% of the nation’s mined lead.

The museum features restored underground-mining equipment, exhibits on mining history, an impressive mineral display, and an audiovisual program on the lead mining and milling process.

The museum can be examined at your own pace (exhibits are labeled); you may choose to have a docent provide more detailed and personalized interpretation. The site holds special events designed to enhance the site’s mining history and mineral resources interpretive themes.

Check the website for hours and fees.
