Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited the actual mine and expected it to be grey and dull. It was nothing like expected, Fantastic array of rock colours, as only nature can do. A truly remarkable landscape and well worth a visit.
According to a resident, the museum in Amlwch is closed indefinitely. Seems it is a leased building and has a major damp problem, being constructed against the cliff face. Who pays to resolve this is the issue 🤔. Shame as would have liked some more in depth info.

My hotel owners recommended a trip here, they handed me an official 'Anglesey Attractions' leaflet. Copper Kingdom advertises as open until the end of October. On Friday October 28th Google Maps plotted my route telling me Copper Kingdom closes at 4pm. Drove all the way to find it had been closed since September !!!

In all honesty this isn't a big museum. But it is fascinating for all that. built up against the rock face with water trickling down, gives it a good atmosphere. But a quick visit to Pary's Mountain is needed to complete the experience.

Though it may be small it is very interesting with a few interactive areas that the kids liked. The ladies at the main desk where very nice and helpful lovely ladies. Worth a look.

We went to Amlwch Port first which was nice but not much. People just leaving the exhibition centre said it wasn't worth the entry fee so we skipped it and continued to the old copper mines on Parys Mountain. This was a total surprise, miles and miles of paths through mining spoil heaps and down two deep excavation holes, all showing every colour of the rainbow. Absolutely amazing and unique, like being on a brightly painted surface of the moon. You would need to travel to the former ochre quarries in the south of France or the painted desert in Arizona to see a similar landscape. Worth any detour.

Nice little museum however we felt it was expensive for what's there. We are a family of four; 2 adults, 2 early teens. We read reviews before we went and still couldn't work out whether dogs were allowed or not - they are! We followed the museum with a walk at Parys Mountain which made more of a morning of it.

Based at Port Almwich this museum carries the message about the area's importance in mining copper ore.
Nice small museum with some innovative ways of conveying the information about copper mining in the area.
Unfortunately, a number of the exhibits were either damaged or missing, some of the AV screens had poor or without sound and what was the 'swipe card' labels all about.
Clearly the museum needs to have some investment to bring it up to date but despite this, it was still an enjoyable and educational visit. A good one for a rainy day.

We found this an interesting museum with lots of information on the mining in this area. Lots of interactive boards. Awful conditions that the copper miners endured and it made us angry that the man who arranged for the mine to be set up got massively rich and all the miners suffered so much
It was also sad that the mine managed to.extract all the copper in less than 100 years and left a lasting polluting legacy.

We visited the mynydd parys copper mountain earlier today and really enjoyed it. However, I have to say it was a little difficult to navigate the site and each of the places of interest did not always have an information board telling you about its history. There did seems to be an app you could use but we struggled to download it. A simple QR code at each location would have been a lot more user friendly. Worst of all the car park information board highlighted the modern mine across the road as a place of interest (mark no. 11) but when we went to look at it we were met by an aggressive work person who told us we should not be there and suggested we had deliberately ignored the signs on the barriers along the path (but all the barriers were actually open so warning signs were not visible to us). When we tried to explain that the information board had highlighted it as a place to visit he basically said we were wrong and told us we had to leave! Not a good look for Anglesey or the visitor attraction. Needs sorting out.
