Key Stage 3 & 4

Big Pit is one of the few mining museums where young people 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 secondary school and beyond, young people can visit the underground mine, learn about welsh life, and social and economic change. For full details, please visit the Big Pit, National Coal Museum's website.
