Description

The National Coal Mining Museum for England takes visitors to the depths of the mines to re-create the methods and conditions of the coal mining industry by a tour guide who is an experienced local miner and knows the subject inside out.

Above ground there are interactive galleries, pit ponies, steam winder and pithead baths, train rides to a recently restored Hope Pit, adventure playground and a nature trail. Also a cafe and gift shop.
