King Edward Mine is an award-winning museum of Cornish mining

We are now closed for the winter and will re-open in April 2019.

King Edward Mine tells the fascinating story of mining in Cornwall.  


Explore the many buildings with their magnificent 

working mining machinery.  Over our long history, Cornish tin and copper  ore  from deep underground was brought above ground and  processed in our Mill to produce tin concentrate.

One of the best museums in Cornwall

See our beautifully restored equipment demonstrated  by our knowledgeble guides.

Visit the  the UNESCO Cornish Mining World Heritage  landscape where we have two iconic  Cornish engine houses.

Our volunteers continue to work on the site for the whole year, and you are welcome to join us.  There are indoor and outdoor jobs to be done on our 22 acre mining landscape.


The Chair of the Trustees, Dave Ager, has written about the our sucessful 2018.

One of the ideal places to visit  in Cornwall

Our  tours are entirely undercover and ideal for a rainy day in Cornwall.  We are recommended by the good dog guide as we welcome four-legged friends.
