The Coal Mine exhibit introduces guests to coal, a natural resource, which is an important part of our heritage in Northeastern Pennsylvania. You can go back in history and explore life in the time when coal was king. You 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. Listen closely and you will hear some sounds that reflect the underground atmosphere.
