Visited the museum and took the self guided tour and it was well worth it. Very informative and interesting displays. Combine this with the maritime museum and cafe just up the harbour for an interesting morning before heading out to Parts mountain for a walk.

Museum is a little dated with pod catchers to give you a flavour of opinions about the mining from actors. Mine didn't always work. The main film was good but more about Swansea. Dressing up opportunities and brass rubbing too.

A real step back in time with some fascinating information about an industry which was a huge employer at one time.
