Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season until at least early July and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. There will be no public events until early July at the latest.
While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.
Although the museum is largely devoted to commemorating the largest mining disaster in British history, it also documents the wider history of the Valley, including the Windsor Colliery, the sporting achievements of local residents, the old shops and buildings, memories of community events and the community’s involvement in the World Wars. Resources at the museum include mining related objects, photographic displays, archive films and interactive touch screens which contain hundreds of images showing the people of the valley, local landmarks and buildings through the years.
