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

We'd love to have you with us on site but for just for now we'll be coming to you with our virtual workshops and loan boxes. We also have lots of resources right here for you to use.

Take the opportunity to welcome our miners or characters from history into your classroom with a live interactive workshop by video call. We can also help you plan immersive days using resources from our loan boxes or extensive online resources.

Our learning team will be happy to help you plan your experience; you can get in touch by emailing education@ncm.org.uk .

We hope to welcome schools back in September 2021! To help us make things right for you and your class as we prepare, could you take a minute to complete our survey?
