We love learning history this way
Sep 2021 • Friends
Was a little sceptical when my brother suggested this as he started work as a safety officer for the coal board and I thought he was biased.... but we had an incredible day learning history and seeing amazing things. We started in the information centre with a film, general history and lovely interactive wall about the mining process (so glad the children are back at school and us pensioners could play!!)
Armed with the heritage trail leaflet we walked round the harbour and had a lovely soup in the sail loft.
Back to the car with another leaflet and short drive to mynydd parys to be spell bound by the tourrain left from the mining. A very enjoyable 2 hour walk (1 hour shorter version). Very little cost to the day.

Fantastic insight into the local copper mine - well worth a visit!
Aug 2021
We looked at some of the reviews and were a little hesitant as some people said it took less than 10 minutes to go round and wasn't very good...How wrong were they????? We spent over an hour walking round looking at the exhibits; listening to the audio recounts re-enacting scenes from people who worked the mines; using the interactive boards to show what mining entailed (great for the kids); brass rubbings not to mention the vast amount of information on the walls....made you realise how tough it actually was. Staff were really helpful telling us about other attractions in the town as well as how to visit the actual mine itself. Definitely recommend seeing the museum before going to the mine....it really helped to envisage what it would be like.

As I have a Parys penny in my posession I wanted to check this out and it was so interesting. I learned a lot about the copper mining industry and even as an aduly I enjoyed the interactive displays!

Good museum
Jul 2021
This is a great museum, set in an old building which was part of the industry. The museum is well worth a visit to see how copper featured for the community and how it was used at the time and now.
The area is fabulous for a walk and a couple of very interesting geocaches.

Wheelchair accessibility
Unfortunately on the day we visited the lift wasn't working but they gave us free access to the downstairs section and there was loads to see there. Signs suggest the toilets may not generally be open but we asked and were taken through - all well adapted for wheelchair users.

Don't waste your money
Aug 2021 • Family
Loved the walk on Pary mountain. But personally think the copper kingdom visitor centre was not worth the money. If your a copper mining enthusiast then you will probably like it but otherwise don't bother. 7 pound per adult and was only in there 10 minutes. The maritime museum up the road was free and found out a lot more.

Terrible
Jun 2021 • Couples
All week the website has said it reopens today at 10.30am. After a 45min drive we foind it was shut. Having checked last night we were not happy to have wasted our last day and petrol. Website was changed after our visit. This seemed to happen to another visitor recently so don't rely on it.

Good place to visit
Apr 2021 • Couples
Good parking and off you go. Well signposted and the scenery is great. Free to visit but make sure you were appropriate footwear as the ground is uneven and steep in places.

No open yet due to Covid restrictions
Jul 2020
Can’t really rate hence the reason for a 3. Copper Kingdom was still closed when we went to Amlwch in the last week of July 2020 during Covid restrictions. The website wasn’t clear but it was still Locked up with no indication when it might open. We still visited Parys Mountain and walked around the mines. I have posted a detailed review And have to say it was worth a visit.

Parys Mountain walk
May 2020 • Solo
Great place to walk and wander and discover, there are trails to follow though if go off track you won't get lost. The colours are magnificent especially if caught with a blue sky and beaming sun.
