We visited after being at the Flight 93 memorial. Don't make a special trip as you won't be there long, but interesting none the less. There is no gift shop or tour guides. Just a few sites and signs.

Too see where these 9 brave miners were trapped for 4 long days and finally being rescued was amazing. The 9 trees planted in their honor.
