  1. This is magnificent. I always think…who arewere they? Dreams…etc. The miners wall chilled me.

  2. Interesting museum. Thanks for showing the plaques I was able to stop the video and read them.

  3. Wow, great museum and history of the area. When you head back to Arizona, check out the Jerome State Historic Park's Douglas Mansion. Great history of the mines in Jermone and mining history. ~db

  4. Hey Carolyn, I've spent so time in that museum, looking for history of my Grandfather. He worked the coal mines. Cumberland is where my father started school. We live and grew NE Alberta. The is awesome as well. Safe travels. God Bless

  5. Very interesting, thank you for the tour! The coal mines during the 1800s brought to mind a sad thought; throughout the mining world back then, many poor mules and small horses were lowered into the pits of those mines in order to pull the carts..there they lived out their days, breathing cold dust and NEVER being raised to see daylight again.

  6. Love the places you share with us, Carolyn … I'm a big museum geek. LOL I grew up in a small, quiet town; there's nothing like it! Hope you had a great Mother's Day. 😀

  7. What a cool museum! Thank you for taking us with you.
    💕💐💕Happy Mother’s Day!!!💕💐💕

  8. Happy Mother's Day Carolyn! Love learning about the history & people you have visited. The Chinese and Japanese were instrumental with the development of BC. Thanks for scanning the signs so we can pause and read them too.
