About the Museum

The Coal Museum was founded in 1985 with the mission to serve and educate the public on the history of coal mining. The museum was built on land previously mined for coal and serves as an example how land can be put back to use after mining and reclamation.

Everyone is welcome to visit the Museum to learn about coal mining and its history. The building is full of memorabilia, artifacts, and books on coal mining. No admission is charged for entry; the Museum operates on donations. Organizations and groups are also welcome, and tours can be arranged in advance.
