Loved this place. It's so historical and keeps you in awe. Love how raw the tour was. Like they didn't make it glitz for tourist. It let's you feel the real deal. The family that runs the place were soooo nice!!!

We really enjoyed the tour! Our guide, Larry, was super informative and funny! It is cold in the mine but there are jackets you can use so it wasn't a big deal. The museum is nice, but the tour made it worth the visit.

First of all it's 52° in the mine so you should wear long sleeve shirt or bring a light jacket. But if you forget, they have loaners for you to grab off the hanger as you exit the museum to enter the coal mine! This...More

A bit off the beaten path but worth the drive. Unlike the state's coal mine museums, this one is owned and operated by a local NFP. This is not a glitzy museum complex and the museum itself, packed with items, is a bit jumbled. However...More
