Mine tour.

Tour-Ed Coal Mine and Museum

Larry and Joe were fantastic tour guides, having spent their entire lives working in the coal mines. Their personal stories really make the tour extra special. We learned a lot! My four teenagers really enjoyed it too!

The coal car into the mine was a unique experience. It's loud, fast and travels through complete darkness.

Tour-Ed Coal Mine and Museum

The Tour-Ed Mine and Museum helps you experience what it was like to be a coal miner in the 1850s. The guides are experienced coal miners who treat visitors to an amazing, educational tour 160 feet below ground.

There is also an above-ground strip mine, and a 1785 log house. Haunted Mine tour is in October for Halloween.
