Making Enquiries


National Mining Museum Scotland offers an enquiry service for those who are unable to come to the library and conduct research themselves.  We aim to respond to all enquiries as quickly as possible, but please bear in mind that some enquiries can take longer to resolve than others.  As a general rule, we respond within two weeks.  If you have not had a response within this time, please do get in touch again.

Please email enquires to [email protected] or write to us at:

National Mining Museum Scotland

Lady Victoria Colliery



EH22 4QN


Note that it can take longer to respond to enquiries made via social media.

While the staff and volunteers at NMMS are very happy to assist with research and may also offer expertise based on their own knowledge and experience, please remember that these are personal opinions and are not necessarily those of the Museum.  If seeking advice about, for example, subsidence in relation to the purchase of property, always consult a practicing surveyor or other relevant professional.
