  • Pretty good for a local museum. Lots of effort made to give details for people interested in detail but plenty for people less directly interested in lead mining. Some nice bits of climbing for the kids (and vaguely flexible adults). Worth an hour.
  • Excellent guides / hosts - for our group of 24 (Scouts and Leaders) Caves and panning for gold - and inter-active activities at the Museum WELL DONE!!
  • Visited the museum this morning, 20th May, found staff helpful and willing to talk and the museum itself well laid out and very interesting. It brought to life all that I had read in the books, made sense of it all. Well worth a visit; I can recommend the Museum unequivocally.
  • had a couple of great hours in there today, a wonderful museum, and even as an adult i had a load of fun climbing around it.
  • Great value for money was in there for 2hours
