Just go and do the underground tour. You will not be disapointed. Above ground tour is also very interested.

Important and fascinating historical experience with a combination of the actual equipment used by the miners and newspaper accounts of the time when the deadly explosions and bumps happened. The highlight was going 300 feet underground down one of the mine shafts to see and feel what the miners worked in. Leaves one with a feeling of admiration for those men.

What a great little place! Friendly knowledgeable staff, the tour down into the mine gives one a brief idea of how tough things must have been back in the day. Definitely worth the price of admission.

This Museum gives the visitor a great appreciation of the hardships that the miners worked under in the Springhill coal mines. I particularly enjoyed examining a model of the mine in its heyday and the tools and and equipment used in extracting the coal from from the mine. The walk down into the mine certainly enhanced your understanding of the working conditions

I first heard the song "The Springhill Mining Disaster" as a child at summer camp. It has haunted me my whole life. So given the opportunity, I went to visit the area. It was too early in the season for the mine to be open for tours, but there is a wonderful memorial that can and should be seen.

A neat place to stop for an hour. Lots of exhibits on display in the museum itself - coal miner hats and tools, photos, newspapers etc. The tour started in the washouse and then continued into the mine itself. Very interesting and the guide, Tony, was funny and entertaining. Well worth the stop.

The tour of the coal mine was fascinating. Before the tour begins, you can take your time viewing the exhibits in the museum. Then you don a hardhat and yellow slicker and are given a metal tag just like the miners had. These tags were hung back on a board after the miner finished for the day and in this way the miners were accounted for. You then descend into the mine. The grade isn't steep and is suitable for all ages. You learn the history of the mine as well as the disasters that occurred including the "bump" in 1958. When the tour ends, you return your tag and learn the fate of the miner who had that numbered tag. Educational and fascinating.

We had a wonderful tour of the mine, which my kids 10 and 6 loved. Also, my mother in her 80's loved it as well! Very interesting to hear the history of the town, mine and it was very fun to actually go into the mine and experience what it would have been like to be a miner!

great experience, very informative, cool history lessons, really make you feel like you're going back in time, super cool guided tour down into a real mine, hard walking at times when in the mine due to steep inclines and wetness
