Visit this former coal camp and learn what it would be like to be a miner.

The museum displays items related to coal mining operations such as equipment, mining caps, lights, and other aspects of a coal miner's life. Guests will see a display of a barbershop, a hospital room, a store, and some home furnishings inside the museum. A special exhibit for Loretta Lynn is here too. Loretta grew up in southeastern Kentucky, and there are 2 dresses that she used to wear on display. Another neat exhibit located in the basement shows visitors what it is like to be underground. The mock mine is only 54 inches high, and you can walk or crawl around to experience it.

Guest Services has strollers and wheelchairs if needed, but they are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Both the 1st and 2nd levels have restrooms. Pets are not permitted unless they are service animals. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 4 pm. It is closed from the end of December to early January.
