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 during our normal summer
season. During the off peak months, weather
permitting, we can still meet with small groups and
tell the story in the Visitor's Educational Center.
Larger groups will need to wait till the snow is
removed from the deck and walkway to get into the
auditorium. Remember we are located in Somerset, PA. A
town known for its heavy snow fall and winter sports.

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, Miracle at Quecreek
Mine.

Call the Foundation at 814 445 5090 for more
details or email us at Bill@9for9.org or
Vicky@9for9.org.

Thank you!
