The museum is a reflection of Roslyn, it's tenacity, love of life and the richly seasoned ethnic mix that once represented more than 20 nationalities, and still does in the genealogy of it's inhabitants and former residents. Coal became the common denominator overcoming language barriers, various ideologies and diverse cultures. The result was and still remains a way of life unique to company towns. The Roslyn Museum encourages a $2 donation (or more) per person to help them keep their doors open.

- " A nice little museum in Roslyn. A fun stop if you are in this little town, or passing through. Free admission (donations suggested). Not a huge museum by any means, but for its size, there is a good amount of historical items. "
- A cool collection for a donations only museum. I get the feeling that anyone seeking to find historical information might find more than a gem or two here. Additionally, there was sooo much cool stuff to see from the history of Roslyn in this densely utilized space. The gentleman who oversaw the place was very kind and did not blink an eye when a number of Seattle geeks decided to walk into his museum... It felt good and welcoming and I will check it out again if I get a chance."
- " Right next door to the "famous" Roslyn Cafe. This small, well kept museum houses a collection of artifacts and memorabilia from the height of the town's Coal Mining boom. It is interesting to read and see how much history a tiny little town like Roslyn actually has. The museum runs on donations so remember to put a little something in the donation box if you stop through. They also have restrooms. "
