    Rydułtowy
    W Rydułtowach przy KWK "Rydułtowy" w budynku byłej wagi tej kopalni zlokalizowana jest Kopalniana Izba Pamięci. Już samo miejsce, gdzie znajduje się Izba Pamięci KWK Rydułtowy – Anna zasługuje na uznanie. Niegdyś umiejscowiona była tu waga drobnicowa służąca do ważenia urobku lądującego później na wozie konnym czy naczepie samochodu ciężarowego. Fasada budynku zdradza jego charakter. Powstał w 1906r. i każdy element, który możemy zobaczyć na zewnętrznych ścianach świadczy o tym, że mamy do czynienia z zabytkiem wielkiej wagi. Śląski Wojewódzki Konserwator Zabytków nie miał wątpliwości i w 1984r. wpisał budynek do Rejestru Zabytków Województwa Śląskiego.
