Good news, the mining museum is a favourite place of mine.

When young T was even younger it was always a required visit after an underground trip, apparently the "mine" in the museum is far more scary than real old mineworkings Roll Eyes

Not too scary - it's warm, dry and no falling bits. Much better than a real mine as there's coffee & biscuits and a souvenir shop. The staff and volunteers are quite friendly too! Thumbs Up

An excellent visit, went there today and enjoyed the trip, wormed my way through the climbing shafts.
