Collections on Film

Dr Jim Closs, one of our collections volunteers and an avid filmmaker, is interpreting items from the collection using film.  These are the films he has completed so far.  We hope that you enjoy them and that they help to bring our collection to life.  Please email keeper@nationalminingmuseum.com if you have any suggestions for objects or topics that you would like to see covered in this way in future.
