Miners' museums at Springhill, Glace Bay and
elsewhere have particularly close ties to
community and are uniquely poised to establish
links between culture and geology, as are First
Nations interpretation centres that draw links
between the Earth and spiritual traditions.
Amos Seaman School Museum
The Amos Seaman School Museum is an original Acadian one-room school house, that houses a collection of photos, documents and models commemorating the life and achievements of Amos "King" Seaman.
Established in 1977, the Museum presents the coal-mining history of the area in five rooms of displays. The collection reflects the pioneering and mining history of the community from 1803 to the 19th- and 20th-century mining eras.
