South Wales Miners Museum
1970’s saw the end of mining in the Afan Valley, facing the
prospect of unemployment, local people stood together and formed
the South Wales Miners Museum. Their goal was simple, to show the
world what life was really like for the Welsh miner.
Today, the museum features a Lamproom, Engine House and Sheave
Wheel. The most emotive section of our museum is an exhibition
showing the work children carried out underground. Leaving a big
impression on visitors it provides an accurate reflection of the
dangers faced, by those in the mines.
