The tour of the mine is like nothing else I've done before. Being in the actual old mine in the cold and dark, wearing hard hat and headlamp, it really makes the history come alive!

This tour is one of a kind. We wore hardhats with large battery powered lamps. It's cold in the mine, so bring a jacket. The experience was like walking back in time and our guide was well versed and had a great presentation.

We went to this coal mine tour never expecting such a wonderful history lesson. The staff was excellent and it was well worth the tour. Don't miss it. A great hidden jewel near Franks Slide.

The tour itself was not overwhelming, or exciting, but a very good historical look at coal mining and the hardships involved. Pictures do NOT do this place justice, so if you want to feel what the miners felt in the early 1900s, stop in for...More

unfortunately no. The mine closes for tours I believe on Labour day weekend and opens again in the spring. You live in Calgary? It's well worth the trip in the summer!
