Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site, Drumheller

(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Drumheller attractions like Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
