  • Try to visit this Museum for two days without success ... yesterday they closed with more than 1 hour in advance and were told to return today. We returned with our immense displeasure and disappointment we couldn't visit because there are tours with scheduled times and yesterday no one informed us of this. In the sign outside says that from March to October the Museum will be open from 10 to 17, which is not true since we arrived at 15:10 and we were able to visit ... ... come from Edinburgh and after 1 hour by bus to get to this Museum, we had to come back ...

  • Very interesting and worth going. Our tour guide, John Anderson is an ex employee of the mine and very friendly and knowledgeable. I had high expectations of the tour and was excited about it and he made the tour that much better than I was expecting. Nice chap. The winding engine is very impressive. We have already recommend this place by word of mouth and the feedback was good too.
  • The guides are the best bit. Really bring the mining story to life. Got to know their audience and tailored their presentation to suit. Kept our 6 and 8 year old grandkids interested.
  • I went with kelty primary school and it was really good everyone enjoyed it and John was brilliant
  • Our guide gave us a real insight into what it was like to work at the coalface.
  • Fantastic museum with brilliant guides. John and Dave were superb, their stories made the place come alive!
