The National Coal Mining Museum in Overton was established in the former mine called Caphouse. The coal had been mined there from at least 1789 to 1985, when the mine was closed. It is a unique example of coal mining in the last centuries. In 1995 the museum became the National Museum. The National Coal Mining Museum presents the life and the working conditions of miners who used to work underground. There are numerous period tools and devices, and you can learn a lot about the historical development of mining industry. A part of the museum is a visitor center with additional expositions. When under the surface, you can have a ride in the mine train.
National Coal Mining Museum is open daily from 10 to 17 . It is closed on 1 January and 24-26 December. Admission is free. It is recommendable to wear warm clothes into the museum. Cigarettes, lighters, batteries and electronic devices should be left at home.
