  • Nigel was a great tour guide and was very informative. We learnt a lot and got an insight to how mines work. It was highly enjoyable and certainly worth the money.  more »

  • Did the mining tour only, Nigel was amazing keeping you engaged in the description of the complexity of excavation from the beginning of the mining activity in Tennant till today.
  • Well wroth the stop in if you enjoy local history...... the 3 little museums are awesome and really well done. Thank you for the time put in to all 3 of them by the locals.
  • Good as a visitor centre to get some info about the area and further south. There were no mining tours running that day.
  • We visited the underground mine (we did not take the other tour) and found it very interesting. However, just know that this mine isn't a real mine, it is a replica built for instructional & training purposes, and the person leading the tour, while knowledgeable and fun, had never worked or been into a real mine. They are upfront about the former once you have paid and the tour starts - I wished they were upfront before you book the tour. It's still excellent, but it feels a little dishonest to hide this until after the tour starts.
  • Good old traditional place but needs renovation
