A good place to come to learn some Cornish heritage. Mining was an important industry in Cornwall (the whole idea behind the show Poldark) and here you can learn about the mine, visit the underground mining tunnels and feel what a miner must have felt when they had to work in such dark and harsh conditions!

A real 18th Century tin mine and Hard Rock museum with underground tour which tells the story of Cornish tin and copper mining.the mine is set in an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty with the dramatic Coastal scenery which is famous all over the world. There's a shop on site and it's an interesting trip for children too.

A preserved tin mine and museum provide an insight into the methods and equipment used in the industry that was once so important in the area.Guided tours let visitors see the tin treatment plant and a video illustrates the techniques they used.A Museum of hard rock mining opened not so long ago and the underground tour is well worth the visit.
