A bit off the beaten path but worth the drive. Unlike the state's coal mine museums, this one is owned and operated by a local NFP. This is not a glitzy museum complex and the museum itself, packed with items, is a bit jumbled. However...More

What a unique experience being there in a real coal mine. The tour was so informative, educational and exciting, everyone in our group loved it. Our guide Larry was very experienced and interactive. I strongly recommend this if you are in the area.

Depending on how far along you are, getting into the car may be tricky. The roughness of ride was minor, definitely damp.
