Great people. Very fair cost. Excellent experience for all. Rustic, real and authentic. They were apparently closed but we were assured by Tammy she would open the museum and mine if she could get 10 people to take the tour. She assured me she would call me back and did in 10 minutes to tell me she would open the... More

The Lansford coal mine tour is a must see of the local heritage when you're in the area. They take you straight in on a coal car to show you how mining was done years ago. It has a constant temperature inside of about 60°, winter or summer, so it is very comfortable, but they do provide jackets before you... More

Me and my husband made a stop here on our way to the Pocono mountains for our honeymoon to do the mine tour. The owner was very friendly, and our tour guide was very funny and also educated on the history of the mine! we had a great time!

Probably the best anthracite mine tour. We were able to see all the elements of coal mining in the tour. The tour guide was very genuine and full of useful facts.

You may have read or picked up information about coal mining. But, until you take the tour and see if first hand. Will you really learn what life was like. The tour guide is very knowledgeable.

We visited the Coal Mine and Museum expecting a mediocre stop on our venture through Pennsylvania. What we found is an amazing piece of history that rivals most other attractions and certainly other coal mine tours in the area. You will want to wear comfortable shoes and perhaps long pants and sleeves if you are susceptible to being chilled easily.... More

We toured the mine yesterday and loved it. The museum you walk through while waiting for the mine tour is small and a little interesting. The real treat is the mine! The tour guide takes your group into the mine on a little mine train thing. Be prepared- inside the mine is a constant 50 degrees. If you get cold... More

My PA History teacher actually took us on a field trip here in 2007 when I was a Freshman. I really enjoyed how they exemplified coal mining from back in the day. It's a sweet little piece of history in this historic state.

Tour guide Carman and museum manager Izzie were terrific and informed. The mines, left as they had been abandoned in the 1970s, give an intense view of life in the coal mines in the 19th century with all the misery and danger. Izzie answered all of my additional questions after the tour. A museum unlike any other.
