The death of Her Majesty The Queen last Thursday has been a great source of grief across the nation, the Commonwealth and the world. The nation is now readying itself for the Queen’s State Funeral on Monday 19th September and as a mark of respect National Mining Museum Scotland will close on the day of the funeral. We will reopen on Tuesday 20th September.
We extend our warmest wishes and greatest sympathies to King Charles III and to the Royal Family during this time of reflection and gratitude for the life of Queen Elizabeth II.

 

 

Welcome to National Mining Museum Scotland, a 5 Star visitor attraction housed in the wonderfully restored Lady Victoria Colliery in Newtongrange.
