The National Coal Mining Museum for England is the museum of the English coalfields. It collects, preserves, displays and interprets whatever relates to the coal industry in England to enable all to learn about coal mining communities and the mining industry. The Museum’s aim is to advance the education of the public in the history of mining in England by the provision and maintenance of a museum both underground and on the surface at the former Caphouse Colliery for the demonstration of past and contemporary mining methods and the exhibition of machinery and other items connected with mining and industrial archaeology.
The Liaison Committee is a liaison group designed to facilitate relationships between the Museum, the various bodies with an interest in coal mining and Local Authorities in coal mining areas.
