Welcome to the National Coal Mining Museum for England!
You do not need to pre-book surface visits. We recommend that you pre-book Underground Tours but you will be able to book on arrival (dependant on demand and capacity).
We will be regularly monitoring our capacity on site and may potentially close the site at short notice to ensure the enjoyment and safety of our visitors.
We will be asking all our team to continue to wear face coverings indoors and would strongly recommend that you do too.
There will be guidance and recommendations at various points on site to assist you with managing your own safety during your day out.
Our Underground Tours are open again:
o We recommend that you pre-book but you will be able to book on arrival (dependant on demand and capacity).
o There will be no more than six people on each tour and this could be a mixed group
o It will be mandatory for all individuals going underground to wear a face covering for the duration of the tour (including children and those normally medically exempt) - this is to protect you and our Mine Guides. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
