  • Lovely museum. Great staff and good food in the cafe. Inside museum fully accessible, outside area limited for wheelchairs. Visited Sept 2016.
  • Great day out and we saw loads of red squirrels. Food was great and service very cheerful, well worth the ride out.
  • Brilliant day, knowlegable staff, mine tour great along with rest of sight. Well worth the visit. Its a hidden gem.
  • The museum is situated in the breathtakingly-beautiful place. It has both excellent indoor and outdoor parts that are really worth visiting. Staff are professional and friendly. To sum up, the museum provides a good introduction to the mining history of England in a pleasant way.
  • Visited in July 2016 whilst staying with friends. Incredibly interesting with a very knowledgeable guide. Very well worth a visit (no spoilers in this review, but you will definitely learn something) :-D
