This fascinating and fun museum houses the story of coal and mining in Scotland. The Lady Victoria is the last surviving Victorian colliery building in Europe, and features two floors of exhibitions, interactives, a film and photography archive and a Magic Helmet audio guide. Special tours by ex-miners along the coal road and at the coal face make the experience as real as it gets for all the family. For fans of massive machinery, ask about our Big Stuff tour, and enjoy the huge scale of the mine and the engineering masterpieces while following in the footsteps and tales of hardship endured by miners and their families as well as the camaraderie along the miners' rows.
We recommend that you bring warm clothes. Some areas of the museum can be fairly cold!
This award-winning museum is fully accessible and wheelchair friendly with free parking, children's play and picnic areas, the Coal Shed coffee shop and our famous gift shop.
