The site gives a recount of the miner's experience and rescue efforts. There is a statue and the actual pipe used to shelter the miner's while being pulled to safety. In addition, a new visitor center is being built and will be open to the public shortly. Overall, we thought the site came up short on information but the drive there was interesting.
