The Beckley mine exhibit is a model mine preserved at the edge of Beckley. Due to its popularity, the miner statue is an exact replica of the one found at the Miners Monument. As it was preserved as a tourist attraction, it became quite attractive as a settlement in the wake of the nuclear war.
The Beckley mine exhibit is a raised park area surrounded by a chain-link fence. The workshop area is roughly square, bordered by the road in the east and the edge of the mountain to the west. Three oil, a gold, and a crystal resource deposit are present and can be mined with a mineral extractor. Six food and eight water resources are also available. There are multiple park pavilions and a small, wooden playground can be found to the northeast with a chance of a caps stash in the middle of it. At the center of the park is a large copper statue surrounded by benches. To the west is a blocked-off abandoned mine entrance. A large wooden structure is on the hill above the entrance, but cannot be climbed.
To the southeast, a small, gutted museum that serves as an informational center and gift shop for the exhibit can be found, though only the first floor can be accessed. A locked safe (Picklock 2) is on the wall behind the counter in the building. There is a supply closet with a few junk items behind a locked wooden door (Picklock 0).

The Beckley mine exhibit appears only in Fallout 76.
Behind the scenes
The Beckley mine exhibit is based on the real-world Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine, formerly known as Phillips-Sprague Mine. Lead artist Nathan Purkeypile went on the mine's tour while scouting out West Virginia for the game, and took "hundreds of pictures." The sign at the in-game location is also based on a real-world sign for the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine.
