Explore Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site, a former coal mine in the heart of the Canadian badlands. The site offers a range of informative tours that bring insight into the tough--and sometimes deadly--work of coal miners. Hop in a coal cart attached to a locomotive and you'll be transported around the site. Visit the country's last standing wooden coal tipple built in 1936. Don a hard hat and descend through the tunnels where the miners once spent countless hours. Be aware, however, that the tunnels can be claustrophobic for some.
