  • Fun fun fun. Who thought a cold (52F), wet, dark and dirty hole in the ground could be so much fun. Our tour guide was AWESOME, funny and very knowledgeable.
  • A very different experience. It was amazing to go deep inside the mine. It really made us realize how awful the working conditions would have been there, particularly during the early days of mining. Our guide was a local young man and gave a wonderful tour. Money well spent. There is also a museum related to the history of this coal mine.
  • Great place to see/experience what coal miners went through. Loved the ride in/out of the mine in the coal cart.
  • Strolling Down Memory Lane! Having grown up 1 block from this mine, the tour brought floods of great memories -- especially seeing the miners leave after the day shift and walk up Snyder Ave. I currently live in Texas and brought my grandsons to see the area where I grew up. Dozens of relatives worked this mine so the tour was especially poignant. Having grown up on stories of the mines did not even begin to prepare me for the reality. This is what those men endured on a daily basis to put food on our tables and clothes on our backs! Utterly amazing.
  • Not your typical tourist attraction, 100% practical, educational, with a hands on experience and basically a window back in time. Local townie guides showing you around the coal mine and explaining how these company towns and mountain communities grew around them. I highly recommend, Great tour and museum.
