Coal Mine Exhibit (May-June)
Pinging pick-ax’s, clattering coal carts, and dialogue in the dark. Experience the sights and sounds that were once common here in the Mt. Diablo Coal Field. This guided experience brings you into a re-created coal mine, as we experience them working as they were during the 19th century.
All participants must be age 7 or older, and parent participation is required. Hard hats are provided. Please bring a jacket; you will be underground in the mine, where temperatures are in the mid-50’s year-round.
30 minute tours are available every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:00pm and 3:00pm. Please be sure to select the correct date and time.
