Key Stage 2

Big Pit is one of the few mining museums where children can descend in the pit cage and visit the places where generations of coal miners worked. Many of the surface exhibitions and displays are housed in the original colliery buildings.

At Key stage 2, children can visit the underground mine, see a spoil tip to learn about its wildlife, learn about victorian childhood and life as a miner.
