Welcome to the National Mining Museum Scotland, a 5 Star visitor attraction which provides a great day out for all ages! They're based at one of the finest surviving examples of a Victorian colliery in Europe, the Lady Victoria Colliery at Newtongrange, just nine miles south of Edinburgh.

Visitors to the museum will marvel at the sheer size of the place, be astounded by the engineering brilliance behind all the machinery and retrace the footsteps and struggles of the thousands of miners and their families before them.

Your experience begins with coal's creation in the Carboniferous period 360 million years ago and follows human efforts to extract it from the earth from the 13th century through to modern times.

Their fantastic new addition is the Mini Miners Soft Play and Mining Mechanics Interactive Zone! The soft play is suitable for tiny babies up to kids around 8 years old.

Plus take a guided tour of the pithead and experience the atmosphere and noise of a working pit with the personal insights and anecdotes of our guides, all of whom are ex-miners. Tours are available throughout the day.
