  • This is an excellent collection of historical items from the Moonta region. Set up in the old school building the museum covers many years of Cornish life, copper mining, schooling, church life and society. Well worth a visit when you are on the Copper Coast. You can get your train tickets here for the mine tour too.
  • Loved the train ride. Well worth the money to hear about the old mines and the Pickety Boys. Loved lolly shop too. Did not look through museum but will next time.
  • Great historical attraction, make sure to visit lolly shop for some sweet treats and take the informative train ride through the old mines, and visit the other historical points of interest round the area not far from the lovely township of Moonta an excellent place for families to stay lots of different accommodation options,fishing free water park for the kids beach jetty
