Take A Tour

Join us for an unforgettable tour of our underground mine, beginning at a height of 5 feet 6 inches. Led by a retired coal miner, you will gain unique insights from someone who has truly experienced the miner’s life. The tour also features a two-part virtual simulator where you can learn about the daily routines and challenges miners faced. Additionally, you will experience the intensity of an underground disaster, offering a profound understanding of the risks involved in this profession. Don’t miss this chance to delve deep into the world of mining with a knowledgeable guide.

Our tours typically run between 1 hour and 30 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is a walking tour. All members of a tour must wear a hard hat. Strollers, wheelchairs, and other mobility devices are allowed.


During the season, tours start at approximately 11:30 am with tours ending at 4 pm, depending on visitor demand. For groups of 10 or more, or to arrange a tour during the off-season, please reach out to the Museum at 902-849-4522.
