Crafting the Mine

| £15

The sessions below have been cancelled.  Instead the Mining Museum will offer FREE activities.  To find out more follow this link.  FREE ACTIVITIES


The Lady Vic has been built in Minecraft and now YOU can explore the colliery and play our game!

You’ll be playing in two’s so sign up along with a friend – or we can pair you up on the day!  You’ll be miners in the colliery and you’ll have to work hard to extract the coal and bring it back to the surface to get paid!  You can then invest your hard earned cash in tools to make the job easier/quicker in and attempt to beat your opponents!

Sessions are at 10am, 12.30pm and 3pm on 17th & 18th October and run for approximately 2 hours each, with a 30 minute tour of the “real” colliery with an ex miner guide to set the scene.
