South Wales Miners Museum

South Wales Miners Museum

Exhibition at the South Wales Miners Museum

Visit the museum and find yourself being taken on an historical journey back in time. The museum contains a replica miner's tunnel and an extensive collection of photographs and various mining artefacts (both indoor and outdoor).

Children can experience the dark room where there is no natural light, emulating the conditions underground. Cap lamps and helmets can be tried on and your imagination can enhance your experience of a time now very distant. This is a must see attraction in Afan Forest Park.
