Miners fought for their rights as workers and as Americans by banding together--across race and ethnicity--for a common cause. They believed all people had the right to safe, dignified, fair work.
Today, we're inviting you to join us in ensuring that the story of these miners and their families is honored and learned from for decades to come. Be one of the first Members of The West Virginia Mine Wars Museum.
We're banding together like the men and women who lived this history to be sure it will live on--to be sure it will live in our children. Sign up today for your Mine Wars Museum Membership!

The new Miner's Memorial exhibit is now on display!
For the rest of August, you can find the new Miner's Memorial exhibit on display at the United Mine Workers of America Local 1440 Union Hall in Matewan. While there, you can make a check tag in memory of a fallen miner. Check out the video display, great photos and stories of mine disasters in the area too. The exhibit will move to the Museum in early September. Special thanks to those of you that joined us on August 6th for the big unveiling!
