We pride ourselves on being a hands-on site, putting all your senses to good use as you explore.
Our staff and volunteers are on hand throughout the site and love talking about our history with plenty of real life stories to tell about life at Geevor when it was a working Tin Mine.
Fun for children of all ages
We run a programme of events and activities aimed at children and have plenty of fun things to do during the school holidays.
Our free onsite activities include:
- Interactive museum exhibits using various media and senses, suitable for all ages!
- Entire site to explore and discover at your own pace
- Have a go at ‘gold’ and gem panning in the Mill. Keep what you find for free!
- Our Hunting for Tin trail
We are signed up to very brilliant Kids in Museums manifesto.
It is one of the ways that helps us to know that we truly are a great place to visit.

Helpful Family Tips:
There are baby changing facilities in our toilets on site. Please ask a member of staff for directions to the nearest facilities.
Pushchairs cannot access all buildings, so you might want to bring a baby carrier. To go underground children need to be able to walk independently.
Pssst. Don't forget the dog!
Dogs are welcome across the entire museum site and The Count House Café, with the exception of the underground mine.
We provide drinking water for them at various places across the site. And with the South West Coast Path running right through our site, there is plenty of walking, sniffing and tail wagging to be done.
Assistance dogs are welcome across the whole site without exception.
