From Our Editors

The National Mining Museum Scotland covers everything from miners’ daily routines to the prehistoric creation of coal, and surveys the development of the various methods used to extract coal from the ground. The site also features regular guided tours of the Pithead led by former miners, aiming to convey the noise and intense atmosphere of a working coal pit. A cafe and children’s soft-play area are also available for visitors, and the museum is open seven days a week.

Great guide. Didn't realise it closed at 4pm, kids were disappointed to find the shop closed when we finished the tour.

Some of the tour is underground/outdoors so take warm clothes. Café does sandwiches fresh to order. Your visit with tour and a visit to the café, the exhibits, and the shop will take about two and a half hours.
