“Go 1/2 mile underground”

As early as 1850s the Tour-Ed Coal Mine & Museum was supplying the country with coal that was shipped across the nation. By the 70s, the mine was officially closed as it underwent major renovations. It re-opening as the Tour-Ed Mine and Museum, and since, has taken over one million guests underground to explore the deep, dark caverns of the ancient mine.  Before the tour begins, guest get a lesson regarding the ins and outs of everyday life as a coal miner during that time period. You’ll get some hands on experience with authentic 1850s mining tools on the 13-acre site before jumping into a real coal car and decending half a mile underground. You’ll even get the chance to experience what its like to be trapped in a mine with no lights.  The museum is modeled after the home of a 1850s miner, complete with authentic tools, antiques, and even general store items, all of which has been around for well over 100 years. You’ll even get to explore a 1785 log house that might have been lived in by the very men who worked the mine.  The Tour-Ed Coal Mine Museum is a perfect mix between a living history museum and an awesome adventure underground, which is the best of both worlds. If you’re looking for an adventurous family friendly afternoon, the Tour-Ed Coal Mine is the perfect place.  -Roadtrippers Before your underground tour, you’ll learn the ins and outs about coal mining, miners and the equipment they use.
