The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine and Youth Museum today announced that they have received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award.

Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, this award is a remarkable vote of confidence for our attraction and our continued commitment to excellence.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.
