Awesome information to learn about coal mines in general. Very cool and perfect for a really hot day. They have a little gift shop that actually has many "The Office" items in it. They do tours every 30 minutes, but leave early if they are all booked. You should get there a half hour early for your tour because they might book up and you'll have to wait even longer. The whole tour was great and it was very intriguing to learn some of these facts and lasted about 1 hour and 15 minutes. :)
Very informative. The tour guide was great... Awesome experience for all agea
