The best museum I have visited for a long time. Spacious, but packed with really interesting exhibits and information. The exhibits explaining the mining processes are the best I 've seen - simple and accurate. Wish we'd had more time to stop, but we'll be...More

Went as a day trip with my 5 year old daughter. The place is fairly compact over 3 floors. A vintage toy room, medical history room, Cornish mine (and gems) and a room on local figures of note. Staff were friendly and inviting and there...More

The museum is very small but there is no entrance fee, just a donation box. There's a gift shop, old toy display, gem stone display with magnifier and an eye opening plastics display with information on its effect on wildlife. Worth a visit.

Called in here for a look around. It's free to visit but we left a donation. Lots of interesting things to look at. Staff were on hand to answer any questions and there were activities for children.

I can't find too much to say about this place as there is not much to say, but you will find it down a side street in the centre of town, behind Webb's Hotel, inside the tourist info. The staff and very helpful and welcoming,...More
