  • So Cool I’m so glad that they have finally done something to recognize And promote our Eastern Kentucky coal. The coal museum was such a great idea
  • I grew up in Benham and I still love it . My mother was also born and raised in Benham with IH being her father's and father in laws employer and then her husband's, my dad, as well. The staff were great, the memories were almost overwhelming, and I left knowing I'd be back soon. Great great job done there. Loved it all
  • You have to see it.and great little town full of history.
  • I love this museum. Call in advance to get the guided tour. Nearby lodging at the wonderful Schoolhouse Inn.
  • I'm only here because I saw that John Oliver HBO show about a how this museum is powered by solar LMAOO
