Background of museum establishment

Coal is our only natural energy resource and has been contributing to the progress of the national economy by playing an essential role in providing fuel and boosting the national infrastructure industry. However, as alternative resources develop the demand for coal is decreasing. So this museum was built to preserve important historical data by collecting artifacts and documenting the history of the coal industry in one place and provide a learning environment to understand the coal industry as a whole for posterity.
