Well laid out over a few acres with very interactive exhibits telling some harrowing stories of life as a miner. Internal part of the museum was amazing and a good coffee shop to boot. A total must if you are in this area

We would thoroughly recommend a visit. The story of this and other local pits, and the people who lived and worked here, is told in a very interesting and engaging way. The annual pass for the cost of a single visit is an excellent bonus.

The mining museum is very interesting & quite emotional in parts for me! Especially reading some of the stories of the families lives & the conditions they worked in.All in all it was very well presented & well worth a visit,to see how brave those Men& Children were.Also not forgetting the Ponies.

Great day out at the Woodhorn museum. Very interesting. A lovely cafe to finish the day off. Staff are very happy and helpful even to the point that I had a sandwich made for me as there was no brown bread ones left.
I would certainly recommend a visit

I've never been to Woodhorn Museum before, but after seeing a report from the museum on a local news progamme, I decided to pay it a visit.

Woodhorn Colliery was a working pit until 41 years ago, with many of the buildings restored, and a visitors centre added called the Cutter. While it's not possible to go underground, you can stand in the pit shaft and see the machinery where men and pit ponies were lowered 880 feet into the ground. Also the stables have been lovingly restored with an exhibiition about the pit ponies, which were used at the pit until it closed in 1981. There are plans to build a miniature railway on the edge of the museum, which should attract more visitors.

However, the main attraction is the Cutter visitors centre, where there are interactive displays about the life of a miner from the early 20th century, a mock up of a coal seam, displays of colliery banners and features on the Miners Strike in 1984 and the colliery band. Football fans will love the display of memorabilia of Ashington's world famous Charlton Brothers, and art loves should check out the gallery containing paintings by the Pitman Painters, miners who were taught to paint in their spare time in the 1930s. Another thing I liked was the mock up of the miners cottage from 100 years ago, where the attention to detail was brilliant.

For £ 7, Woodhorn Museum won't break the bank and is an excellent tourist attraction for people who are interested in the coal industry. The museum is easy to reach by car from the A197 and is signposted from Morpeth onwards.

An absolutely fascinating museum on the mining industry and the lives of those who worked at the Ashington Colliery. I cannot recommend it highly enough; we all came away feeling we had learnt a lot about an industry about which we had very limited knowledge. Really well presented and explained. The Pitman Painters' exhibition was also fascinating and we had a very interesting guide take us through some of the paintings which added enormously to our enjoyment and understanding.

Very much enjoyed our visit .

The walk through coal town was very well done and found the whole site very interesting .

A really good museum giving insight into the history and experience of the mining industry and was good at being factual rather than sentimental or political. the visitor centre is a beautiful building but my one disappointment was that the Ashington painters gallery is really badly lit with lots of reflection off the surface of the pictures making them hard to see. I could see most of them better on the information tablet you can use than on the wall which rather removes the point of going to see the originals. this really should be addressed.

Enjoyed the overall experience of the gallery of pitmen painters and also the exhibition of black and white photographs showing social history in the Cutter building. There is an exhibition showing how miners lived and what it was like cutting coal in the very narrow seams underground.

There are also some buildings to look in such as the pithead under the winding gear which lowered the cages to the bottom. Mining was dangerous work as explained about the disaster when over 200 men and boys lost their lives.

We also tried the cafe which served excellent coffee and scones. Would recommend Woodhorn for a visit. Plenty of space for children to play.

Decided to visit the museum after reading the good reviews and I am definitely glad we did.
A lovely museum with lots of information but done in an understandable way which makes it more enjoyable.
Dogs are allowed in the grounds which was great for us.
The cafe is lovely and the outside area was really tidy which isn't always the case and food choice good and reasonable.
It's set in lovely grounds and even has a children's outside play area.
Please support them if you're in the area.
