  • Great venue beautifully preserved features of the original mining buildings with top quality facilities. Well worth a visit.
  • Very informative exhibitions, fascinating to see life through the eyes of our guide Jimmy, an ex-miner himself. We had a lot of kids in our group, so he had to keep it family friendly, but I get the feeling old Jim could tell a story or three! Great cafe, and kids go free! What's not to love?
  • Nice place to learn for children and adults. Small groups guided by ex-miners, knowing the place in details. Very informative. Maybe the area requires a bit of renovation.
  • I visited the museum on a very dreich Sunday afternoon and it turned out to be a great day. The museum's exhibits are very well presented and the tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable. I think all age groups would enjoy visiting the museum.
  • Nice place. Most people would like it. I have tried better
