Our Philosophy

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.

Our Work

 

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.
