Summer family fun at the National Coal Mining Museum

by | What's On

This summer at the National Coal Mining Museum there is so much for the whole family to do that you may even need to visit twice!

Up at Hope Pit, grab your bucket and spade and travel back in time to the 1960s to see how miners spent their summer holidays.
Dig deep and uncover a summer of fun, riding on the train, enjoying beach games and learning what a treat it was to go on holiday for just £5 per car.
All through the holidays, not only will there be a huge sandpit for you to come and explore, there will be welcoming donkeys (27 and 28th July / 14 and 26 August). There will be summer crafts hosted daily except Saturdays, Living history interpreters will be delving into the past and firing up the barbecue.
So grab that bucket and spade and experience what is sure to be a thoroughly British summer event!
