Tour was very informative about the hardships of mine work. The museum collection was interesting--lots of artifacts from workers and the labor union helped tell the story of the rough lives of the workers. It didn't have the sterile feel of the usual neatly packaged museum, and I noticed a lot of people didn't spend much time looking at the collections, but rather just waited for the mine tour to start. That was a shame, since I think they missed something of the experience. The trip into the mine really did help things come to life. I don't think I'd take a 5-year old who's afraid of the dark, but would definitely think that a pre-teen or teenager would find it meaningful and memorable.
