A Mine of Information!

A visit to National Mining Museum Scotland can provide a powerful learning experience that your pupils will never forget. At the heart of the five-star Lady Victoria Colliery lies a mine of information. Pupils will be immersed in historic buildings, see science and engineering in action, explore their local heritage and discover the history of mining through hands-on experiences.

National Mining Museum Scotland’s learning experience is designed around the Curriculum for Excellence experiences and outcomes and is led by experienced heritage learning professionals. From guided tours, workshops to exploring our exhibition floors pupils can enjoy interdisciplinary learning throughout their visit. Please select one of the below options for further information:
