The Coal Mine exhibit introduces the children to coal, a natural resource, which is an important part of our heritage in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Children can go back in history and explore life in the time when coal was king. They will explore a mine tunnel, see how the walls are supported and how they branch underground, experience the darkness and see a cart the moves coal out of the mine. They will hear some sounds that reflect the underground atmosphere. The children will see equipment used by coal miners.
