Prestongrange Mining Museum

Primary three enjoyed their visit to the museum today. They met Sarah who showed them around the Beam Engine. This was the highlight of their visit as they got to climb to the top. They also dressed up like Victorians and had ‘tea’.
At the centre they looked at the exhibits and drew one of their favourite pieces and wrote about it. Back at the shop, Sarah told them about the history of the mine and what it was like for children in those days who worked picking up all the coal that had been dug. [rockyou 157772896]
