Step Back in Time, a mural by artist Lillian Loponen, welcomes visitors and pays tribute to the rich heritage of frontier life during the boom days of the 1920's silver rush. The museum features internationally recognized exhibitions depicting prospecting, mining and remote community life amidst one of the richest silver discoveries in the nation. The museum’s photographic archives includes the early colour portrait work of local photographer Kennedy Bradshaw. Locally made items are featured in the gift shop. Keno provides a unique opportunity to drive up to alpine terrain at 6000' elevation on Keno Hill.
