East Coulee Mine & Dine
A joint venture with the Atlas Coal Mine
Step back to 1937 and the first day of a rookie coal miner in the untamed Drumheller Valley. When ‘Coal was King’, life was tough and the pitbosses were even tougher.
Mine and Dine sets the stage at two historic sites – the Atlas Coal Mine and the East Coulee School Museum – where visitors seize the unique opportunity to unearth the life of a coal miner. Discover the area’s gritty mining culture first-hand – rub shoulders with real life miners and families, put on work clothes, and handle real artifacts.
After work, unwind in their booming coal town and break bread with the locals and new fiends, while savouring a heart Hungarian family-style meal.
