Really interesting to know how those coal miners work in dark and cold place. My kids enjoyed riding on both steam train and coal train. Be sure to bring jackets or sweatshirt on coal tour. It's really cold! Oh by the way, if ya have an hearing loss...they have an script of tour paper available! They also have a nice... 更多
Too rushed. Groups too large. Could have been very interesting. When you stop to take pictures, you don't hear about the next stop. Anyone in the back of the group couldn't hear the guide. If you have the time and means visit Lackawanna or No. 9. Way more information given, smaller groups, more interesting and museums are free to wander... 更多
It's about 55 degrees in the mine so be sure to grab a jacket. The walls and ceilings drip water so something like a sweatshirt with a hood is a good idea. It's a short tour but interesting...I brought six kids ages 5 to 13 and they all listened and talked about the tour the rest of the day. I... 更多
Were in the area and needed something to round out the day.. went here just to fill the day and were pleasantly surprised. It was fun, interesting and informative. gives you a new perspective about coal mining. Would be a great day for the kids or a school outing. Also, the tour guide was great and helped make it interesting... 更多

Don't be intimidated by the steep narrow roads that you need to drive to get up to this mine. Parking is a little interesting and is mostly on the road with a little parking lot to the right when you drive up the hill. The parking is for the little town park and the tour. Getting tickets was easy and... 更多
Refreshing on a very hot day,mine was in 50's. We missed the train ride by about 30 seconds due to road work. We approached the train,but they would'nt wait.Oh well...from what I saw we did'nt miss much. We've seen&done better mines&trains.Pricey for what you get in our opinion. o.k. but nothing great.
The knowledgeable staff and educational tour gives you a realistic feel for what it is really like to work in a coal mine. Its truly fascinating to take the train 1800 feet into the side of a mountain, 400 feet underground. Its a bit chilly, about 50 degrees inside the mine, and if you're really tall, watch out for your... 更多
Very interesting place to see and tour! Was amazed to hear the miners worked 10 hours a day in the mine and only made $1.00 a day. Also the coal mine company owners didn't pay them in cash, just a company voucher to use on rent or food purchased from coal company owned stores and housing. Children as young as... 更多
This is a real coal mine. The guys giving the tour were authentic and informative. The tunnel is cold about 49 degree's. The train is accessible to wheel chairs. While it's priced separately the train and tour, you really need to but both. It was a highlight of our cross PA tour.
