The Lackawanna Coal Mine Tour will conduct excursions on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM.
Explore 300 feet beneath the earth through one of Lackawanna County's anthracite coal mines that originally opened in 1860. Follow your guide through the winding underground gangways and tunnels past three different veins of coal. Listen as they take you back in time and show you the day in the life of the area's workers that powered the Industrial Revolution.
The Lackawanna County Coal Mine Tour is a National Award-Winning History Attraction. Descend slowly into the earth in a mine car as you enter the old Slope #190. Watch the sky slowly disappear. Soon you’ve reached “the foot.”
The mine is handicapped accessible with some restrictions. A handout is also available for the hearing-impaired who are not accompanied by an interpreter. Please contact their office for specific limitations on accessibility. Parking is free in the lots adjacent to the Coal Mine Tour main building, the Shifting Shanty. Handicapped and motor coach parking is also available.
