“Tour and actual coal mine by rail car!”
Portal No. 31 Underground Mine Tour offers visitors the unique experience of touring an actual coal mine by rail car. Visitors will adorn the traditional protective gear of the coal miner as they enjoy animated exhibits along the tour. Outside Portal #31 stands a black granite monument in tribute to long time president of the United Mine Workers John L. Lewis and a memorial to U.S. Steel District #1 miners who died in mining accidents. The site also features a 1920s lamp-house, bathhouse, L&N train depot and loadout system.
This was an awesome tour and great opportunity to learn about coal mining for our entire family. Admission includes the Kentucky Coal Museum, just a few minutes up the road. Kids were thrilled to be invited to take a piece of coal as a souvenir. Highly recommend this tour.
