Deep Down Underground - Full or Half Day Workshop

£160 per class half day/£280 per class full day

Pupils will explore coal mining in Barnsley using objects and maps from our inspiring archive and museum collections.

They will handle mining objects, explore the Experience Barnsley Museum, which will be closed to the public for your use throughout the day, and understand map progression over time. Pupils will make a local history study.

This workshop is suitable for one class (maximum 36 pupils) - if you'd like to bring two classes please ask us about our half day option.


Accessibility information for Experience Barnsley can be found here, including a 360 tour of the Museum, visual stories and photographs to help plan your visit.

There is a Changing Places toilet available at Experience Barnsley Museum.

We are happy to help and make any adjustments we can for a range of access needs, please contact us before your visit to discuss this.

Thank you for an excellent day - perfect intro into our local area study and a great opportunity for children to use a range of resources and draw conclusions
