We took our seven year old and it was amazing. We've been several times and love it. They split the tour up into two days. And both are worth it! Very informative. Makes u feel like ur right back in 1930s nordegg. Stay in nordegg area and enjoy the breath taking views. We re recommend goldeye lake

Went here a few years ago and it was such an amazing experience. I love learning about the history behind all these old buildings and hearing the stories. This is a great place to go with your family and has great picture opportunities. It's a must see.

I came across the mine site while 4x4 offroad exploring in the area and didn't realize you're to have a guided tour to see the site. None-the-less, the area is quite interesting and well maintained. There is a lot of structures and history here to explore. Definitely find out about the guided tours as I'm certain the education they provide... More

It turned out to be one of those great suprises you come across when you're on a trip!! We went there on a rainy day, but since it was mostly indoors... More

We arrived too late to take the full mine tour but did enjoy a tour of the small musem and gift shop. We enjoy reading about the men who travelled to this very remote to mine coal and build a very thriving company town populated by up to about 2500 people during it's heyday. The gift shop has a variety... More

The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Due to safety reasons, there are limited access points to the mine entrances. There are better accessible mines in the Rocky Mountains for sure. It was a nice trip into history - but it was a do it once only experience.
