The Kentucky Coal Mining Museum is located deep in the heart of the Appalachian coal fields in a former coal camp town, Benham, Harlan County, Kentucky.


Through the vast displays within and around the museum, tourists will be immersed in the life of a coal miner and his family as they struggled to make a life for themselves not knowing how valuable their contributions were to the industrialization of the 20th century.  





Also visit the Portal 31, which is part of the Kentucky Coal Museum.


Projected opening date for the portal, August 2006
