Education at King Edward Mine

Schools

At King Edward Mine Museum we have good indoor facilities for groups in the historically important Survey Office with its huge draftsmen's tables and stools, used by former mining students. There is a well-laid out, yet compact, museum ideal for groups of pupils to work in. Experts lead trails through the mill where pupils can observe the turning, winding, shaking and splashing heritage machinery. On wet days it is quite possible to fill every minute with purposeful activity indoors while on clear days the choice is even greater with stunning views along the Great Flat Lode trail with its myriad engine house chimneys. Workshops cover STEM and humanities topics.

From a school visit 2015  “ I am writing to tell you that I had fun at your wonderful mine. It is a beautiful place and I loved it.”[I enjoyed] "…the bit where you turned on that wheel and shaker table.  Another thing I enjoyed was going on that awesome trail and another thing I enjoyed was the entire thing. The staff were incredibly friendly, lots of stuff to read and look at. I will definitely be back…”
