  • the one star is only because the parking lot and Visitor Center have absolutely no signage. also please be careful using the Somerset County tourism guide because it indicates the site is open until 4:30 when it is really open until 4. BUT the display in the visitor center definitely deserves 5 stars as does the outside display and the very kind volunteer that answered my phone call and stayed open for us deserves 10 Stars for sure
  • The person telling us the story made it seem real to me. Some of the information given seemed unreal. There's also a nice little giftshop with treasures from the local area.
  • Very nice small museum, showing the events that took place after the Quecreek Mine accident. The rescue capsule is on display, along with a news van and various mining artifacts.
  • Beautiful spot, artifacts are clearly labeled, can get up close to site. Visitor center closed when we stopped.
  • Everyone should take the time to visit this place and listen to the story of the trapped miners
