Exhibitions

Visit the National Coal Mining Museum to be inspired by our special exhibitions. We are delighted to be working with Yorkshire creative talent again this year to present our exhibitions in new, more interactive ways - please come along and tell us what you think. Click on the pink links below to browse the exhibition website pages.

In 2017 we have the 'Heroes and Heroines' exhibition on until the end of March, celebrating the extraordinary lives of the heroes and heroines of coal mining.

From 3rd April we will be focusing on commemorating 70 years since nationalisation of the coal industry with our exhibition 'By the People, For the People'. Come and explore our Temporary Exhibition Space. During 2017 we are also running a programme of events and activities linked to the nationalisation theme. 

Also this year we have a new photographic exhibition in the Mining Lives Gallery called 'After the Coal Dust' which will run from 27 February 2017 – 29 May 2017.
