I must to admit in an interest as an ancestor of mine had been killed in a rock fall at the Huntcliffe mine nearby. We had planned to visit the still standing Engine House for the mine located on the cliff top just off the Cleveland Way and had determined that Skinningrove was the best starting point. At that stage, until we drove into the village, we knew nothing of the museum. we parked and looked at the admissions board - £5.50 each - should we or shouldn't we?
We did and am I glad of that? The staff were, without exception, knowledgeable and friendly and really brought the story to life. This is a tremendous experience which would be of interest to all ages. It is a pity that England is turning into a Heritage Museum country but as that is a fact the existence of museums of this calibre is to be welcomed both for itself and for the jobs it brings to the local communities. Go visit it!
