WVIA 4-Day Family Event at Lackawanna Coal Mine & Anthracite Heritage Museum

Posted by Chris Zellers on

Saturday, November 3rd & 10th, Sunday, November 4th & 11th, 10a - 2p

 

WVIA will be hosting a family event at the Lackawanna County Coal Mine and the Anthracite Heritage Museum located at McDade Park in Scranton. 

Present WVIA Member Card or Valid ID for Free Admissions.

Descend slowly into the earth in a Mine Car as you enter the Lackawanna County Coal Mine where the temperature is a constant 53 degrees year round. There are no remaining active deep mines in the area, so you are literally “going down in history”. The Anthracite Heritage Museum tells the story of the people who came from Europe to work in the Anthracite Mining and Textiles Industries.
