Arigna Mining Experience

The centre was developed to preserve the energy heritage of the Arigna Valley and to ensure that Arigna maintains its link with Energy themes: Past, Present & Future. It provides visitors with a unique insight into what coal mining life was like in the Arigna Valley, since its beginning in the 1700s until closure in 1990.
