Eckley Miners' Village Reviews
We were disappointed. We went at the end of Oct. and none of the buildings were open for viewing. The main reason we made the trip out there was to see how the miners lived. During peak season there i... more »
After watching a brief movie on the history of this town it really makes you appreciate how difficult it was for these poor immigrants to work in the coal mines! They were treated like animals more th... more »

My family and I have been going up to Eckley for years now. They have different programs depending upon the time of the year. My only complaint is that they don't advertise enough. On the plus side, however, they do an historically accurate job of capturing what a 19th century coal-mine town looked like. With period actors usually walking around, you can almost put yourself there in 1840. I'm uploading pictures taken last weekend showing my brother in period WWII uniform talking to visitors about the US GI who in December, 1944 dressed as St. Nick and handed out presents to Belgian children who hadn't seen a Christmas since the German invasion 5 years earlier. The people running the event are really great, knowledgable and easy to approach. Good time for the historically minded!
Incredibly interesting place. Especially since my ancestors worked the mines there in the late 19th century. The museum gives a good historical overview and the town still has some inhabitants. Living conditions must have been very harsh in the winter.
This is a place every family should try see to learn about the history of the coal miners and the life that they lived .There very friendly people who work here and there willing to answer your questions .It's a very nice place to come to there Halloween tours which start the last 3 weekends in October and very family oriented.also there Christmas tour in early December.
Eckley is a place you must bring your family. Learn and understand how our area started in the coal industry and the struggles our families endured working in the mines. Life was hard work back then and this is a perfectly preserved piece of a time long gone. You will leave with a feeling of respect and pride for our little corner of the world and gratitude for the men, women and children that made it what it is.
I always enjoy their events. They are fun and informative. It is a good way to teach children some history.
