Join the Western Museum of Science and Industry (WMMI) as we explore the world of science on Saturday, May 13, 2023 from 10am to 3pm in the museum’s outside buildings and grounds. This family-friendly educational event will feature special exhibitors to include the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, Space Foundation, Money Museum, radioactivity and Tesla presentations, and more.
Come see the powerful Yellow Jacket Stamp Mill in action! Feel the power as the entire building seems to come alive to crush ore in search of gold. Watch the 1920’s Osgood Stem Shovel (made famous by the beloved children’s book, “Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel”) as it revs its gears plus other equipment used in mining operations. Hop on a hayride to the Blacksmith Shop or try your hand at panning.
