The National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum (NMHFM) will temporarily close the Matchless Mine to the public starting August 20 due to earthmoving operations that are part of a project to rehabilitate the No. 6 hoist house.
The site will remain closed through the first week of September; the exact reopening date will depend on how quickly the work progresses. After the site reopens, tours led by trained guides will be offered through the end of September. No self-guided tours will be available after the site reopens while rehabilitation work continues.
