Great tour comparing with tours in larger cities than Leadville. We had a great knowledgeable guide: the gentleman from Mississippi who led us through and pointed out things for us. He also dealt well with questions. The whole place is fascinating

Tour two historic Leadville homes and see rooms full of antiques and historic artifacts. Learn about Leadville history through a lengthy guided tour. The museum is well maintained and clean and admission is reasonable for families.

My wife and I took an hour long tour of the Healy House Museum and Dexter cabin while in Leadville, Co. It is well worth the tour, lots of History and interesting items to hear about and actually see what the guide was talking about.
