This fascinating museum gives you a really good understanding of how Cornish mining developed. There are two sites, either side of a Morrison’s supermarket.

We spent a couple of hours at this attraction. It is a National Trust site. Very interesting museum. A little difficult to find. Park in the Morrisons car park in Pool.
