“This place was amazing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She seemed very interested in what she was saying and we can feel the love she has for the town. Thanks!!!!”

“This place is very underrated. They do a great job sharing Platteville's history and the whole Driftless Area. There is a mine you can go down into and tour, an old train that still runs, and a museum of things that Rollo Jamison collected in his lifetime that is very interesting. Great for all ages. If you're coming through Platteville, make sure to stop here.”

“Our fourth graders love coming toThe Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums for a, on-site field experience of learning! We typically bring 75-90 students each year and the staff always accommodates us into groups. We especially like the tour of the mine because it ties into our curriculum of learning about soil, rocks, and landforms. Students also enjoy the tour of the museum to see what life was like long ago. It's always great to take students to learning outside of the school that they can remember for a lifetime!”

“Our fifth graders love coming toThe Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums. They are intrigued by Rollo Jamison’s collection of artifacts. The playing piano is always a hit. They also get to learn about lead mining and zinc mining that was done in our area. Another favorite activity is riding in the ore car. Thanks for making our class trips very educational and fun!”

Dianne Langmeier, Fifth Grade Teacher
Fennimore Elementary; Fennimore, Wisconsin

“The museum visit was a chance for my class to travel back in time by viewing pictures and touching artifacts. The students had an opportunity to compare historical events to the present day. The visit aligned with our Social Studies lesson discussing long ago versus today. It never ceased to excite them and they did not want to leave!”

Kecia King, Fourth Grade Teacher
Westview Elementary School; Platteville, Wisconsin
