The National Coal Mining Museum for England is a unique collection of buildings, displays and galleries which reveal the hidden world of coal mining through the centuries, telling the stories of mining methods and machinery, the miners and their families. Visitors can descend 140m underground and learn how coal was mined and moved by men, women, children, ponies and machinery. Please leave a gift in your Will to us and help us to keep the history of coal mining alive.
