This museum, located in the borough of Morcín - which forms part of the Aramo Protected Landscape - stands in a typical setting in the Central Asturian Mountains, of major importance in terms of wildlife and scenery and with an abundance of livestock. It is thus an eminently rural and dairy setting, not to mention the weight of the mining industry, another of the mainstays of the area since ancient times.
In point of fact, the museum constitutes a perfect symbiosis between the two facets of Asturian country life, mining and mountains. The building is actually located in an industrial archeology site that is unique in terms of its location and dimensions: the coal loader of the historic Monsacro Pit, with the contents of the museum being on display in the old mine hoppers.Built in: 1993
