National Coal Mining Museum

National Coal Mining Museum Museum with full event programme and event space to hire

With half the site situated in Kirklees The National Coal Mining Museum for England provides a great day out with a unique opportunity to travel 140 metres underground down the last deep coalmine in England with a miner as your guide. Situated in a rural setting, it offers an unusual combination of exciting experiences, whilst providing a genuine insight into the hard-working lives of miners through the ages.

The museum runs a full programme of family, educational, arts, craft and antique events throughout the year.

A unique venue for conferences, exhibitions, private events and weddings.

Set in 45 acres of stunning countryside the museum offers large open spaces, woodland areas and a charming nature trail. There's also a fantastic free Adventure Playground suitable for all ages.

A visit or event at the National Coal Mining Museum for England is a unique day out – whatever the weather! A highlight for many visitors, is the chance to go back in time and deep underground to discover the hidden world of mining through the centuries, but there is also so much more to see and do across the Museum, above ground, indoors and out! We look forward to seeing you soon.
