Crafting the Mine is an exciting and pioneering project which brings the Lady Victoria Colliery/National Mining Museum Scotland to life in Minecraft through a 1:1 scale, historically accurate digital recreation.

The build includes the structures above and the mines below the colliery, with mini adventures that will help learners explore life as a miner; from a working coalface that learners can mine themselves, coal extraction and delivery systems and even singing canaries and the dangers they warned about!

How can you access Crafting the Mine?

Crafting the Mine is completely free to download and is available on Minecraft for PC.

Other historical sites can be found on the Crafting The Past website.

The project is funded by Museums Galleries Scotland, Mining Institute of Scotland Trust, Scottish Coal Industry Special Welfare Fund and the Friends of National Mining Museum Scotland. Built by Immersive Minds.
