  • This is a fantastic place to visit. We went on a rainy day so there weren't that many visitors. It is a great place to learn all about the coal mining history of South Wales. We were shown around unde...  more »
  • I was very surprised at by how many things there were to see at Cefn Coed Museum. There were far more exhibits than I expected and it took me about 2 hours to see all I wanted to see. The staff were all very friendly and were only too pleased to give you information about how thing used to be at the colliery before it shut. Ray was very enthusiastic and passionate about the place you can learn a lot from him as he seems to be a font of knowledge about the industry. We visited on a bank holiday and there were not many other people there, maybe because it was very hot and sunny (beach weather). It’s great to see our industrial heritage being preserved like this for all future generations to see. Hope the council don’t cut their funding for the place any more than they already have, as once it’s gone it’s gone! Well done to all the volunteers and other people who have obviously spent so much time and effort in to creating this Museum, you have done a great job. If I can get my son off YouTube on his iPad I will bring him along to see the museum sometime over the summer.
  • Visited this wonderful museum with my son and mother in law. Great time had by all of us as we asked questions of our very helpful guide, touched the machinery that powered the pit, and tried to get an idea of how this beautiful part of Wales felt while it was a workplace for the local community. If you have the time you should definitely visit.
  • A very informative visit with plenty of photo opportunities and very friendly welcome. There's a quaint old tea room that pleasant to sit in with old items around to interest you too.
  • Friendly, really good day
  • Great place to visit, to learn about Welsh history
