With the support of caring individuals like you, the museum was founded in 1964 in the heart of the historic Upper Mississippi Valley lead-zinc mining region to preserve the heritage, the know-how, the historic fabric, and the human stories of our region.

Since its founding, hundreds of thousands of adults and children have experienced the pioneer heritage of southwestern Wisconsin at The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums. Each year, new generations of visitors discover our Museums and participate in lifelong learning opportunities in natural history, cultural history, and science and industry — especially Platteville's “M” heritage of mining and miners.

Help us share the heritage of our region with the next generation! Your support for the Friends of the Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums (formerly known as the Jamison Museum Association) helps us to safeguard this treasure of our region for years to come.
