Welcome to National Mining Museum Scotland, a 5 Star visitor attraction and winner of the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions "Best Visitor Experience" Award in 2009 and 2013.

The museum provides a great day out for all ages! We're based at one of the finest surviving examples of a Victorian colliery in Europe, the Lady Victoria Colliery at Newtongrange, just nine miles south of Edinburgh.

Visitors to the museum will marvel at the sheer size of the place, be astounded by the engineering brilliance behind all the machinery and retrace the footsteps and struggles of the thousands of miners and their families before them.

MINI MINERS SOFT PLAY

Mini Miners Soft Play, opened in August 2012, is a modern, clean soft play centre for children aged 0-8 years. It has its own dedicated reception area, shoe racks, toilets and baby changing facilities. A Baby Area with ball pool and cushioned building blocks is available for the tinies. Visitors to Mini Miners may order refreshments at reception and these will be delivered by our catering staff.
