Jaw dropping when you realize what was accomplished 80 years ago in the middle of the wilderness. If you like Alberta history this is well worth the time and monies. Lots of walking, uneven paths involved but guides are patient.

Always love going t9 the coal mine tours. Great details on the site and amazing real life equipment. All mine stuff is intact and it's a pretty cool tour. Worth the trip. And worth the few dollars a person.

The museum is filled with great pictures of the area from the early 1900's to 1960's. There is a nice lunch spot in the school house as well. Staff at the museum were friendly and helpful.

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
