  • A brilliant experience of how the coal industry sculpted Wales. With new displays going up and more in depth looks at the lives the miners had, it was very educational. A lot of learning and a lot of fun.
  • Beautiful and heartbreaking experience as livelihoods were lost. It would have been lovely to hear the local dialect in the butchers and other shops as people queued for their goods. Hope you can arrange this as it would liven that area up. Keep up the good work.
  • Fantastically interesting guided tours led by former miners. Great exhibition celebrating not only the tragedies but the achievements that arose out of the coal exploration that made Rhondda one of the most important and influential places in the world at that time. Every child from South Wales should have the opportunity to visit here and get an understanding of history that shaped not only the South Wales landscape but its people.
  • A great day out for all the family Educational and interesting view into Welsh industrial culture. .
  • Fantastic place. Excellent tour with a really good tour guide. Graham was excellent with the children and got them involved in what he was telling us.
