The visitor centre also contains the small museum displaying the history of Nordegg and it's coal mining heydey. It was a very interesting story telling of the birth and death of a coal mining town. We spent well over an hour looking at the displays although a fast reader could do it in thirty minutes. There is also a cafe inside that has some breakfast and lunch items that smelled good (reasonalbe prices) and so many different types of pies that it would be difficult to choose. It's less than a minute off Hwy 11. They have a one hour Overview Tour of the mine operations at 10 am daily for $5 or a two hour more in dept Technical Tour at 1 pm daily for $10. We missed the 10 am and didn't have time to stay for the 1 pm tour, but we'll do it next time. The gift shop had some beautiful items in it. The museum is free, but there is a box for donations.
