Visited with our three grandson's (ages 9-17). They enjoyed the museum and all the mining equipment on display. The mine tour guide was great. He kept their interest with information on all the various areas and activities which went on in the mine and was very willing to answer the many questions they had. I am sure we will go back again soon.

Anthracite built America. This is valuable history and a FUN interesting tour where you get to see a mine pretty much how it was left. Unique to this tour is an intact hoist shaft. There is also a museum packed full of mining artifacts. They have events through the year so check their schedule
