South Wales Miners’ Museum became part of Afan Forest Park in 1972 when a group of coal miners decided they wanted to preserve the industrial heritage of the South Wales Coal Field, that was sadly declining due to pit closures. The coal miners started a collection of coal mining objects and memorabila and formed South Wales Miners’ Museum.
We are set to celebrate our 50th Anniversary August Bank Holiday Weekend.

'FREE ENTRY' on Saturday 27th / Sunday 28th / Monday 29th August.
