The ride down into the mine on an authentic coal car was awesome. Kids loved it. The tour of the mine is great and not too long. Well worth it.

Wonderful depiction of what a coal miner's life was like - puts things into perspective. Great for all interested in NE PA's former major industry. Should be mandatory for all school students in the area. Some walking over uneven terrain & cool temps.

10 USD per person. 7.50 for kids (up to 12). 9.50 for seniors and 9.00 military. No other discounts. . They take credit cards. At the end, guide will ask for tips so have some cash if you feel this is appropriate.
