Loved this place. It's so historical and keeps you in awe. Love how raw the tour was. Like they didn't make it glitz for tourist. It let's you feel the real deal. The family that runs the place were soooo nice!!!

We really enjoyed the tour! Our guide, Larry, was super informative and funny! It is cold in the mine but there are jackets you can use so it wasn't a big deal. The museum is nice, but the tour made it worth the visit.

First of all it's 52° in the mine so you should wear long sleeve shirt or bring a light jacket. But if you forget, they have loaners for you to grab off the hanger as you exit the museum to enter the coal mine! This...More

Depending on how far along you are, getting into the car may be tricky. The roughness of ride was minor, definitely damp.
