An interesting part of the hardships faced by the immigrants that worked in the coal mines. Actually get to ride down into the mine and get an idea of what it was like to work there. Our guide was not the best.

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.
