National Museum of Machinery and
Broadway-Victoria Mine, Silver Star, Montana
June 5, 2011
Tour Leader: Larry Hoffman
Lloyd Harkins spent a half-century collecting and organizing what he calls the National Museum of Machinery on a multi-acre site at Silver Star, Montana. It is one of the largest private collections of mining and farming machinery in the West. Visitors can explore the three huge warehouses and extensive grounds chock-full of artifacts representing all phases of Montana's mining heritage.The historic Broadway-Victoria Mine is located a few miles west of Silver Star. The extensive surface plant is slowly giving way to wind and weather. Nearby is the Madison Mine, a small active underground gold-copper operation.
