  • I wasn't intending on visiting but went along for a friend's sake. It was $10 each and we easily spent a good couple of hoyes but didn't see it all. I had previously been to the park nearby but had ne...  more »

  • This really is a gem of a find. Volunteer setup and run, it has pieces of everything including the ability to go gold panning, with the volunteers showing you the techniques. Allow a few hours to go t...  more »

  • Fascinating museum with plenty of interesting exhibits. For a volunteer run museum with so many items they have done a pretty good job getting everything on display. The grounds and display boards are rather dated, but neat and tidy. I will definitely be going back.
  • Well maintained and loved this place, it's apparent from the maintenance staff to the showcases. I'd park the 'boring thoughts' and keep an open mind and be curiousness. Take a free map with you and choose your interests (mindfully) upfront, then split up and listen to some music e.g. Hans Zimmer while you browse the exhibits. WW1 light horseman display is like a time machine you won't get the same experience from watching a screen. NB: Cafe there makes a good coffee
  • An unexpected gem and well worth a visit. We were amazed by how much work has clearly gone into the museum over the years and the quality of the exhibits. I wonder if advertising it as a mining museum is the best thing as it has just about everything, from an astonishing collection of seashells to a brass knuckle-duster that once belonged to Mrs W Davies.
  • Beautiful museum which requires more than 2 hours to see all areas. Tried to find gold in jar but not easy to find gold particles :) Good place to visit with kids.
  • Not expensive. A good family or school excursion. Lots to look at and interactive. Good eating areas to relax.
