Mine and Dine

Unearth Life in a Historic Coal Town

Take a step back to 1937 and the first day of a rookie coal miner in the untamed Drumheller Valley. Life was tough in the day when ‘Coal was King’ – and the Pit Bosses were even tougher.

‘Mine and Dine’ sets the stage at two historic sites – the Atlas Coal Mine and the East Coulee School Museum – for visitors to experience hands-on discovery and the unique opportunity to unearth the life of a coal miner in East Coulee, Alberta, located in the heart of the Canadian Badlands.

Discover the area’s gritty mining culture first-hand…rub shoulders with real life miners and families, put on work clothes and handle real artefacts.

After work, it’s time to unwind in this booming coal town and break bread with the locals and new friends, while savouring a hearty Hungarian family-style meal.

This unique experience only scheduled 4 times in 2017: June 10, August 19, September 9, and October 14.
