Very much enjoyed an illuminating visit round the mine areas, particularly impressed with the helpfulness and knowledge of the staff. Very well run visitor attraction.

This has got to be the most under-rated day out ever! We visited with two children aged 10 & 13 and expected to be there for an hour and ended up staying for 5 hours! What a brilliant day out. The kids trail kept their interest and it was just like the mine had closed the day before. Creeping through the mine shaft itself it an experience not to be missed. The tea rooms offered fantastic homemade cornish pasties and cream teas. Highly recommended!!

Vastly exceeded expectations -varied and really interesting. The way that the "Dry" has been left in suspended animation is a stroke of brilliance and is genuinely poignant. One of the best museums I've visited anywhere in the country - highly recommended.
