The National Mining Museum Scotland offers an enquiry service for those who are unable to visit the Reference Library and conduct research themselves. We aim to respond to all enquiries as quickly as possible, but please bear in mind that some enquiries can take longer to resolve than others.

Please email us on

If you have not had a response within two weeks, please do get in touch again.

Please fill in the form below or write to us at:

Please note that it can take longer to respond to enquiries made via social media.

While the staff and volunteers at NMMS are very happy to assist with research and may also offer expertise based on their own knowledge and experience, please remember that these are personal opinions and are not necessarily those of the Museum. 

If seeking advice about, for example, subsidence in relation to the purchase of property, always consult a practicing surveyor or other relevant professional.
