A Mine of Information – Community Talks

Best talk I’ve attended in years! I was awestruck at the amount of history right at my doorstep that I had no idea about. It’s really wet my appetite to find out more. We can’t thank [NMMS] enough and are already looking forward to [NMMS] next talk to us! – member of Pollockshields Heritage Trust, 2022

National Mining Museum Scotland offers community talks across the whole of Scotland. These talks are tailored to your local area (or a specific colliery/Pit depending on your topic) and are available in-person or digitally. Each talk includes:

  • An hour long talk from NMMS Education Manager
  • Photographs and maps from our Recognised Collection
  • Real object handling
  • Safety Lamp demonstration

These talks are free of charge but travel costs may apply.

We love to help with community projects and have helped groups such as Kelty Community Council, Y2K Youth Project, Landscape Legacies of Coal and many more! From loaning objects or costumes, attending events, running workshops to photography and film projects we are happy to help.
