National Coal Mining Museum for England, Wakefield

The museum keeps the history of coal mining alive, collecting and preserving the industry’s heritage.

You can chat to former-miners who talk about their mining careers and the men, women, children, animals and equipment that worked in the coal mines for centuries before them. There are six galleries and buildings to explore which discuss the lives of miners at work, at home and their tools. You can also meet the pit ponies and learn more about their jobs in the mines. The museum also has an adventure playground, nature trail, cafe and shop.
