Our award-winning working museum tells the story of tin and copper mining in Cornwall with a demonstration of a working mill.  We are now closed for the winter but looking forward to our Easter Fun and the opening of the new cafe on 15th April and our Open Day on 30th April.


See 2017 Opening Times to plan your visit. 

From Trip Advisor;

Because it's real, it tickles all the senses

The smells, sounds, and sights of this museum with a working mill demonstrating how tin was separated from the ores which surrounded it are unforgettably remarkable.
