National Mining Museum Scotland

Set in the wonderful restored Lady Victoria Colliery, the 5 star National Mining Museum houses the story of Scotland’s mining heritage. Discover the miners’ way of life through two floors of exhibitions before experiencing the atmosphere and noise of a working pit on a guided or self-guided tour of the pithead, recreated underground and coalface. Kids can enjoy our daily “Find the Colliery Cats” activity, backpacks, dress up clothes, books and games and a full program of family focussed events over the summer months. Plus in August, we are opening our brand new Soft Play facility!
