I could say that the journey from B.C. was worth it for this museum alone ( a little exaggeration, but !! ). We had been to the mine tour in Newfoundland at Belle Isle and this was better because of the museum, the miner's houses, and the wealth of information. Our underground tour guide was a retired miner and was able to give us first hand experiences about how "it really was" to be down in the deep. The tour went into lower and lower roof level galleries and I was really glad that I was not a claustrophobic person. There was so much information to absorb and I hope to come back some day and do this again. Quite an amazing experience .....
Thank you so much for your great review. It is really wonderful to hear that you fully enjoyed your experience here. We like to think we are doing our best but it is gratifying to know you were impacted by our story.
You don't know how much your words mean to all of the team here at Cape Breton Miners Museum.
