The young staff here were fantastic! Very friendly and helpful. Interesting buildings, and material depicting what life was like for miners back in the day.

There three guided tours available at this site and are worthwhile.Two of our grandchildren, age seven and six accompanied us and we all agreed that what we learned and experienced was very worthwhile. The lives and jobs of coal miners was extremely difficult and dangerous.
