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.

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 in the new Community Art Space we are exhibiting paintings by Sakubei Yamamoto a world renowned Japanese miner painter. 

We are proud to be working with Norma Gregory (M.A.) at Nottingham News Centre CIC on a project currently at research and development stage called 'Digging Deep : Miners of African Caribbean Heritage'. If you can help with any information and photographs we would love to hear from you. Visit the project page link here for more information. Exhibition will tour including at the NCMME in late 2019.
