What to Expect:
The Seldom Seen Mine offers a fun, underground trip into day-to-day life in a coal mine. As a relatively intact example of a once operating coal mine, the Seldom Seen Mine is an authentic experience, with personally-guided mine tours conducted by former miners. Many of the tour guides are actually descendants of the immigrant miners who once toiled in the coal mines of the area. The Seldom Seen Mine is small enough that you can easily explore the entire coal operation, from mining to shipping.
