Opened in 1855, No. 9 Coal Mine, located in Lansford, Pennsylvania is the

world's oldest continuously operated anthracite coal mine! Closed in 1972, the mine was re-opened as a heritage tourism attraction in 2002.

Today visitors ride safely by train 1600 feet into the mountainside, to see and experience first hand what it was like for our fathers and grandfathers to work underground over the past 200 years.

Once inside the mine, experienced tour guides will lead you on a walking tour filled with amazing sights and fascinating stories! See the underground mule-way; miner’s hospital, and the 900 – foot deep original elevator shaft, which once hauled loaded coal cars to the surface! A visit inside No. 9 Mine is an experience that you will never forget!

  • Amazing! We loved it! We were able to ride in a real antique cart and explore the tunnels even on foot to see the hard to get to interesting places. The staff and person who helped us was so nice. He drove us and took us through a tour of the inside museum. The gift shop was very cheap! We purchased some really neat hand carved coal figures for $3-7.00. We purchased some birds, a dog and a bear. The larger ones were about 4 inches.
  • This place was awesome!!!! Great entry price, ample free parking, gift shop, museum and tour. Bring a jacket- only 50 degrees down in the mine. Also prepare for muddy shoes! Definitely worth it. Thanks guys!
