Really informative old-fashioned museum. It has great looking recreations of mining conditions which looked fun for children to scramble around (but sadly closed because of covid) .

It was a fabulous day out. I took my 9 year old son, he loved exploring the mines and panning for gold afterwards. The tour guide (sorry I can’t remember his name) was lovely very knowledgeable and made it very enjoyable. Very interesting to learn about local history and support local businesses at the same time, the museum also has a very reasonably priced gift shop for souvenirs for the little ones. Would definitely recommend!

We visited the museum on a wet rainy day during half term. The museum was so full of information and held interest for both young and old. We then went on the tour with Chris into the mine. Chris pitched this just at the right level to hold everyone’s interest. Not like other tours we had at caves elsewhere in the district where we felt like the guide just parroted the same information over and over again not pausing for breath! I won’t mention any names! But chris was fab!, and of course planning for gold went down a treat at the end. A great affordable experience for all ages. Thank you.

My eldest son wanted to visit, my youngest didn't! But in the end they both loved the mine tour and the museum. Their favourite bit was planning for gold. The staff were super helpful and to top it all it turns out our ticket is valid for a year! Thank you Chris our tour guide who answered all our questions. A fab thing to do especially on a rainy half term Tuesday.
