took the neice and nephew here today. Not a lot here but when you consider it is only £1 per child to get in you get much more than expected for £1. there is small exhibition area but quite a big play park area for kids. awesome day out for children.

As the daughter/granddaughter of Miners, this experience shows how hard life was for families, above ground workers and the harsh conditions the miners underground had to work in, shows we owe them a great deal.

When visiting you need to take the tour (only £3.50) - Mike, our guide was great. He used humour as well as his own experience to portray what life underground was like. What a character he is!
Plenty of industrial history to read and look at but also social history so interest for all

Our tour guide, Mike, was knowledgeable and entertaining! Very funny and appropriate to the audience. The facilities were fabulous and very realistic. I'll be back!
