The Coalface Experience

The history of coal mining in the region is intertwined with the history of the local towns and their people. The Coalface Experience at Collinsville was created to remember those who have worked in the mines and also to showcase the changing technology of the mining industry.

The multi-media displays showcase stories of early days deep in the mine pits, the use of the hard-working 'Pit Ponies' (actually Clydesdale horses) and of the disastrous mine collapse in 1954.

The whole family will be fascinated by this outstanding museum.
