National Coal Mining Museum

The National Coal Mining Museum at Caphouse Colliery is located between Huddersfield and Wakefield and provides an interesting and informative day-visit venue. Amongst many other things there is the opportunity to take an underground tour of a real coal mine 140 metres below ground, a very memorable experience.

Along with a nature trail, children’s adventure playground and a wide range of interactive and audio-visual displays the museum provides the opportunity for many pupils to gain an insight into, what is for many of them, an industry which forms a key part of their family heritage. It is a relatively short journey from Barnsley and best of all, entry is free of charge.
