Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Youth Museum is great place to spend an afternoon if the weather isn't the best for outdoor activities. In addition to getting to ride a coal car into a mine, there is the Coal Camp to explore. There is a one room school, church and several houses for you to explore and learn what life was like for the coal miners and their families. They recently added a recreation of an early Appalachian settlement to tour as well, when we were there last this part was free and open to the public. The Youth Museum is a great place for younger ones to go and explore. They change the exhibits every so often so its fun to go and see what new things they have to explore and learn.
We've enjoyed several tours through here with our family over the years. It's always a lot of fun and the kids learn a little as well.
