I don't think a one or the other could be singled out as BEST each one is different and in separate regions of the Anthracite fields . They are absolutely some of the best family oriented day out educational/historical attractions that Pennsylvania has to offer .

One of my favortie songs by Todd Rungren ( Philly native) was "Black Maria". After all these years I find out what it means...wicked cool.
