It was interesting to be able to share this with grand kids Would recommend it to all. Anyone with kids should go here and tell them whst the miners had to endure Was very educational.

This is a beautiful tribute to a terrible mining incident that actually had a happy ending. Terrific place to take kids as a learning experience, many pieces of equipment available for viewing etc.
