The Tour-Ed Mine and Museum shows authentic mining tools and methods, from the 1850's through to the most advanced mining techniques and machines of today. All of the guides at the mine are experienced miners. These guides give live demonstrations of the various types of mining equipment to give visitors a sense of what it was and is like to work in a coal mine.
Guides take visitors into the mine in groups of 25 or fewer. This ensures everyone can see the guide's demonstrations. All visitors wear a mine hard hat for protection. A light jacket is suggested, because the mine's temperature averages 52 to 55 degrees year-round.
Visitors are also given a brief presentation by the guides on the various types of hats, lamps, and rescue gear used by miners throughout mining's history. Visitors will even learn the first thing all old-time miners ate out of their lunch pail everyday!
Tourist will enjoy riding the mine cars deep underground to reach the mining display. In addition, a surface tour of our strip mine, saw mill, caboose and auger mining display is provided for your enjoyment.
Memorial Day to Labor Day, open Wednesday to Monday 1-4 PM last tour 3:30 PM.
