Get closer: Racecourse Colliery (members only)

29 March 2018

Join us after hours for a members exclusive opportunity to enjoy a tour of the newly restored Racecourse Colliery with our Head of Collections.

Immerse in a full sensory experience of sights, sounds and smells that allows you to discover what it was like to work at a colliery when the Black Country was at the peak of its industrial power.

  • See Charlie, our pit pony pulling tubs along the tramway
  • Hear the clatter as our winding engine is in action
  • Feel the heat from the coal and steam of the boilers
  • Experience the ‘red by night’ of the Black Country as we light up the working colliery at night

Time: 6pm – 7.30pm

Please note, this event is only available to current members and their guests.  Find out more about becoming a member.
