For the price it is an excellent experience. Well worth the money paid. Loved to learn about the history of the mine from when it started to when it closed. We easily spent the whole day there, lots to see and do!

I was a bit apprehensive about taking small children here and whether they'd be bored but overall it was ok. They enjoyed the panning most of all but also liked going down underground. A good day out for a dull day of weather

This is a must see experience on any visit to Cornwall. The museum is very good, laying out the long history of tin mining in the area. The rugged nature of the Cornishmen who worked these mines is very impressive. The film that is shown...More

Loads to see. I'm not an engineer, nor am I particularly interested in mining but I really enjoyed our trip. The exhibits were really varied and multi media. We really enjoyed the tour of the mine underground and panning for semi precious stones. Cyril Honey...More

We were there about 3 and a half hours, lots to read and look at, the highlight was the trip down the mine which took up at least an hour.

Not that I know, but it's dark down there, and slippery - so you need to be careful if you go with small child.
