Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located close to Senghenydd where the greatest loss of life was experienced in 1913. It is truly amazing how many mines were in operation at the time. Now, thankfully all gone.

A moving tribute to the Mine disasters of 1901 and 1913. Also memorial plaques to the many other disasters including Aberfan.

Really useful resource base, thousands of electronic photos as well as artefacts which have been donated by people far and wide. Very knowledgeable staff on hand too.

My wife is Welsh and has a deep association with the Welsh mining community and it was essential that we visit here and pay our respects.
A very very emotional experience.
Hard to locate, well worth the time and effort.

Beautiful garden, immaculately maintained. Somber but pleasant way to spend an hour.
Definitely worth a visit if in the area.

This is a sad place made sadder by the fact that it should be far bigger and more respected by the authorities. Considering the massive loss of life and the devastation it caused to those left behind one would rightfully assume that the nation would grant this place far more importance. The museum is small but the volunteer staff are fantastic. Knowledgeable and caring. A friendly welcome and a free film made by the people there gives you a true feeling of the dedication all there have to this milestone in industrial history. Online you can find another film made by the Aber Valley Heritage group. I honestly believe that if the government wasn't so anti miner the site would have the sort of investment that seems to go all too often to 'Royal' heritage sites. All the people of Wales should be proud of this place as should Great Britain. Remember, here you are walking over the remains of the 33 men they couldn't recover. The green is returning to the valleys but these hills have black bones.

Lovely peaceful place- It brought home the sadness & loss families suffered due to working in the mines
It was foggy & cold the day we visited in February but very atmospheric !
The sculptures were impressive & the memorial plaques were very interesting. The garden was well tended - planted with heathers which were in flower. We walked to the memorial after a visit to Aberdare valley heritage museum - also well worth a visit!
