The museum is on the site of the former Haig Pit in Whitehaven. It closed as a working colliery in 1986 and incorporates the listed winding engine house and headgear.

The museum includes a visitor centre, café and meeting rooms. It benefited from an 18 month restoration which completed in 2015.

As of February 2016, the museum closed.
