Mining Heritage Museum

Great museum. We enjoyed all of the displays. They are working on the jail section so we did not get to see all of the many displays they had there.

Coffin Skip. So called because there was no way of stopping if something went wrong.

Stope drill used to drill upwards.

They had a great display of how the miners hats evolved.
