Once known as "The Queen of the Copper Camps", Bisbee nestles among the Mule Mountains of southeast Arizona, world renowned for its diverse minerals and wealth of copper. Although its mines closed in the 1970s, the town's legacy has been preserved not only in its architectural and mining landscape, but in a museum that has welcomed, educated, and entertained hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Once the corporate headquarters of the Copper Queen Consolidated Mining Company, the Museum is at the center of town and at the heart of its history.

What's more, the Museum is the first rural affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution nationwide, forming a partnership between the nation's largest museum and one of its smallest.
