The tour will take you 300 feet below the earth into the pitch blackness old-time miners, some as young as seven or eight, had to face. While you won’t have to deal with poisonous gases, you will feel the chill. The Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour is open...more

This tour was an awesome experience. Although a bit unnerving at times being down into the Earth, that only added to the experience. Our guide was so very informative. Being the granddaughter of a N.E, PA coal miner I truly enjoyed every minute.

I would not recommend this for children that young. It's dim, there is not really enough room for a stroller. But more importantly I think that some of the areas may be a bit scary for children that age especially the life like re-enact characters. There are plenty of places to learn and explore above ground and if you have the time and two adults you could take turns going down into the mine.
