  • Lovely time here. Learnt so much. Kids kept busy with questions sheet could of spent longer. Definitely worth another trip
  • A good place to take children (and adults!) who are keen to learn. Lots about China clay from updated museum to the shorter history trail through the remains of a clay works. Longer walks through the woodland and right up to Pit View where you can look down into a large working pit. Also a small play area. Overall good for working off energy. The cafe has been well updated although our orders were just a little slower than eager tummies would have liked. Good for several hours visit. Try combining with a stop at Roche Rocks or down to Charlestown.
  • Come here for a great day out with family and learn a lot about China clay.
  • Excellent museum and good adventure playground for children
