Monument for Life Bus Tour Visitor Information


Miner statue at Monument for LifeBus tours and organized groups are very welcome here at the Quecreek Mine Rescue Site. There is plenty of room for buses on our newly paved parking lot. Our location is close to three major highways: Route 219, the PA Turnpike, and US Route 30.

To ensure that your group gets the best detailed presentation in the time allotted, we ask that you let us know in advance the time of your arrival and the approximate number of visitors.

After hearing how it all happened, we dismiss you and give you time to examine the actual yellow rescue capsule on display at the visitors center. You can see what is left of that broken drill bit that brought tears to everyone's eyes when it broke and separated us from the miners. You can follow the chain of events down our 17 ft. long timeline and watch videos of the miners as they express what they went through. There is so much more here to see, the gift shop, the history of mining, some of their clothing, the Quecreek mine map, and even Bill's newest book.

Call the Foundation at 814 445 5090 for more
details.

Thank you!
