It is difficult to visit a museum that remembers a tragedy that you can remember so vividly from TV. A wide range of memorabilia from both the mining history as well as non-mining exhibits from the lives of the early miners. Highly recommended.

This facility is an absolute must see. Amazing array of displays, lots of inter-active items and an in-depth account of the Mining disaster and the subsequent rescue. Great to see a small town recover from the mine closure and produce a fantastic museum.
