Fuel learning across the curriculum with a visit to the National Coal Mining Museum and give your pupils a unique experience they will never forget.

Our historic colliery buildings, interactive galleries and the chance to go underground in a real coal mine provide an immersive learning environment where pupils can investigate their local history, solve a scientific problem, handle objects, be creative and enjoy the great outdoors.

Whether you are studying local history, looking for science activities or inspiration for a literacy or art project the Museum has so much to offer you and your pupils.

We are also an Arts Award Supporter and can have a fantastic Arts Award resource for schools. Find out more on our Arts Award page.
