This place is more than a museum, this is a living historic place. The mine tour is very simple, yet very rich experience. I don't know about the others, but our tour guide was very humble and friendly young person with lots to tell and share about the history of that place. We went there on 50% discounted family day for residents and definitely worth it. Mine tour itself lasts about 40 minutes. Full experience including short movie and exploring around can take 1.5-2 hours depending on your pace.
Great museum to visit. Lots to see and explore. The tour is definitely worth it. It's hard to believe that this place was such a booming and essential part of our national economy right under our noses. It's hard to fathom just how people a generation ago lived, but this place provides some insight and inspiration. Can't wait until the expansion exhibit opens. It would be neat to explore some of the tunnels too. Do they have tunnel exploration days?
