Broad Top Area Coal Miners Museum

The Broad Top Area Coal Miners Museum is a museum documenting the history of the isolated Broad Top Coal Field in south central Pennsylvania with Ron Morgan as its curator. The museum is operated by the Broad Top Area Coal Miners Historical Society. The Museum and entertainment center was originally housed in the Reality theater in Robertsdale, Pennsylvania.[1] which the group purchased in 1991 and opened in 1992.[2] In 2008 the museum moved to the former Methodist church in Robertsdale, Pennsylvania while the entertainment center remained in the theater.
