“If you want to get down and dirty lol!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

This is a great place to take the kids and learn about mining history. They have a great museum and a nine train ride to the mine's under Lansford where you take a great walking tour! Keep an eye out because during diffrent times they also have events like car shows, picnics and stuff at NO. 9!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

It was an amazing experience, especially because my great grandpa worked there as a coal miner. I was there with my mom and dad visiting from Poland and the staff was so generous and kind and they gave us a private tour. I am thankful for the experience and the lump of shiny peacock coal. The mine is really interesting and unforgettable and tour is fascinating. Whole-hardheartedly recommend.

“Coal Mine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

The family who run this attraction are very nice. We weren't not prepared for the train ride down into the mine and how closed in it was. We decided at the last minute to not take the tour because of some anxiety and claustrophobia issues, and the manager was very accommodating. The museum was great and the video was very educational and interesting.

“Cool tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a great tour for the family to see what a real underground coal mine looked like back in the day. It starts off on a train ride down into the mine and then it's a walking tour from there. Be sure to pack a light jacket as the temps are around 50, it is damp down there. Also wear proper footwear, leave the flip flops at home. There is a pavilion and picnic tables to eat lunch.

“Worth a look if your in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Coal mine tour was interesting. You see how coal is mined, and the conditions that the earlier miners worked under. Bring a coat as it's about 55 F and pretty drippy.
