We are closed for the winter but have been working on improving our visitor experience.
This year, there will be a regular photography courses at King Edward Mine, starting on 2nd April with a 1-2-1 day of bespoke photography tuition - see News and Events.
The museum re-opens at Easter and we have our Annual free Open Day on Sunday 28th April. You will have a chance to meet and talk with our knowledgeable guides who will be able to interpret Cornish mining for you. 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.
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. Whilst they are in ruins, we explain how they were part of our working mine.
The Chair of the Trustees, Dave Ager, has written about the our sucessful 2018.
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.
