A trip to National Coal Mining Museum creates powerful, meaningful and memorable learning experiences that last. Our unique immersive experiences cannot be recreated in a classroom.

• Unique and authentic – meet real miners in a real coal mine!
• Sensory – experience sights, sounds, smells and get a feel of  your heritage.
• Surprising – say hello to our ponies and canaries.
• Engaging – get hands on with interactive exhibitions and immersive workshops.
• Accessible and Inclusive – our spaces are accessible for wheelchair users and our staff are trained to support pupils with a range of needs.

We have a Visual Story so you know what to expect before your visit. You can read our Visual Story here.
