Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site, Drumheller

4.2
Explore Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site, a former coal mine in the heart of the Canadian badlands. The site offers a range of informative tours that bring insight into the tough--and sometimes deadly--work of coal miners. Hop in a coal cart attached to a locomotive and you'll be transported around the site. Visit the country's last standing wooden coal tipple built in 1936. Don a hard hat and descend through the tunnels where the miners once spent countless hours. Be aware, however, that the tunnels can be claustrophobic for some.

  • Loved it! History at your fingertips. Tours of the site offer 4 different ways to experience all it has to offer. Kids loved the interactive nature and wanted to return only 4 days later. This is a really nice place to visit
  • It's like a place u feel so different and it takes u 100 years back like a time machine. I was mesmerized the whole time and enjoyed a lot. Even though u can have tour guide inside the mountains where they used to do the mining.
