National Mining Museum Scotland


A fantastic day out for all the family with two floors of exhibitions, a recreated underground roadway and coalface, the largest winding engine in Scotland and our brand new Mini Miners Soft Play and Mining Mechanics Interactive Zone. See, hear, feel the story of coal mining in Scotland on our Pithead Tour and enjoy the personal insights and anecdotes from the guides who are all ex-miners themselves. Our shop and restaurant are not to be missed.
