Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, really enjoyed the history and stories they shared. We paid general admission and toured the grounds on our own, there was a lot of interesting things to see. It also included a train tour and it was fun as well.

My family of 5 spent most of a day here and took in every single tour they offered. Tour guides were knowledgeable and made the experience extremely interesting. Would visit again, particularly if they actually get the mine opened again.

I visited the Atlas Coal Mine with my brother. We took the Tunnel tour and we found it very informative and entertaining. Our tour guide, Emily, was amusing, knowledgeable, and very good storyteller. Definitely would recommend this to everyone in the area.

This was very interesting and I learned so much. We did the tunnel tour and our guide was good. I did find it a little pricey.
