Explore The Mine and Collections

Geevor Tin Mine has an important collection of relics and artefacts, collected over the years by volunteers, enthusiasts and historians to preserve and demonstrate the significance of the Cornish tin mining industry.

The diverse collection includes rocks and minerals and mining tools. Photography, recorded oral histories, maps, plans and paperwork are an integral part of the collection. It also includes the Geevor buildings themselves, large industrial equipment.

We are also pleased to host the Holman Collection, an impressive collection of engineering artefacts – come and see them on your way back up from the mine.

Many of these artefacts are on display at the museum, but some of them are held in our Museum Archives. If there is something in particular you would like to ask us about, please contact us.

We would love to hear from you if you have an object you’d like to donate to the Museum.
