Climb the last wooden tipple in Canada. Learn how coal was sorted, stored, and shipped in this unique processing plant. Walk the gantry – a gradual ascent – 125 feet up to the top of the tipple to learn about the reality young boys faced: that the dangers of the surface were a training ground for the formidable “belly of the beast”.  The tour involves heights and some stairs.  Sturdy, closed toe shoes are required for this tour. Due to the nature of the building, hiking sandals are not appropriate for this tour.  All ages.

This tour does not take visitors underground.  Physical distancing must be followed at all times.  Children 0-5 years old do not require tickets, but must stay within arm’s length of their parent/group.
