Rarely do my boys rave about a "museum" but this is something they enjoyed. We booked ourselves on their "train" tour and it did not disappoint. We learned a lot about the mining industry in the early 1900s and my boys were able to identify...More

This was a great site that wasn't too busy. The interpreters were very informative. We had time only the train ride tour and walk around the sites. My teens enjoyed it even though it involved history! Would recommend staying longer and joining other tours if...More

It stands out in the valley for sure! 20 or so minute drive from Drumheller full of history and tours. We opted for a self guided site tour for $10/each and toured around ourselves. A few houses, the big building and some support buildings seem...More

Very cool historical site but very pricey to visit. Even just to walk around the site unguided. If you plan to take the tours allow yourself about 1/2 a day to fully experience the site

We did the tipple tour and the tunnel tour. The tipple tour was enjoyable, as it lets visitors go through the last wooden tipple in Canada. Throughout the tour, the tour guide would explain the how workers would sort and distribute the coal based on...More

This was our first time to the Atlas coal mine. It was a short drive away from Drumheller, about 20 minutes from town. Drive past the HooDoos and you are almost there. There is a large parking lot with easy access. I would not say...More

We did the tunnel tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Everyone enjoyed it. Hair nets for the helmets would be nice though. All in all i recommend it.

I don't think this is overpriced, It is just expensive, likely to maintain as well. We paid for the train ride, but later my son joined a mining group so I went and paid more for it. I know he appreciated it. I suspect most...More
