This section lists all the organisations that are currently members of NAMHO.
In the on-line handbook, you can also select to view sets of members according to their activities or geographical areas.
From this page, you can get access to the
detail which used to be contained in the NAMHO handbook. Copies of the
last version of the handbook are still available but it is considered that
publishing the handbook as web pages will mean that the detail can be kept more
up to date.
The original introduction to the fourth edition can be read on
the handbook home page.
A separate page contains a map showing the locations of
museum members and further information about the museum entries. Information about
affiliated organisations is included on a separate page but the affiliated members are listed below.

Any organisation wishing to join NAMHO should in the
first place contact an officer of the organisation (ideally the Secretary)
but, to provide the relevant details, there is an application form which
contains some explanatory notes. This can be downloaded here.
Royal Commission on the Ancient & Historical Monuments of Wales
A number of other museums cater for those with an interest in mining. A
list will be found on a separate page
which includes the names of museums that are NAMHO members.
This list does not imply endorsement by NAMHO or even that the museum is still
open to the public.
