Love all things
Get on our email list to be invited to gardening days at the museum. These range from pulling invasive species, planting new wildflowers, digging holes and seeding native grasses. Come learn along with us as the MO Prairie Foundation teaches us about native planting!
The Joplin History & Mineral Museum is committed to creating exhibitions that inspire our diverse audiences to engage deeply with Joplin and its mining history. We see our visitors as partners in actively exploring exhibition content.
How We Began
Our story starts as a group of Joplinites who decided that we needed to have a place to tell the story of our town and how it began. The best way to look forward is to look back into the past.
We strive every day to breathe life into the inanimate objects that make up the history that defines our city. We look into the future by looking at our past.
