What our families say...

"Hi Lesley,

We thoroughly enjoyed our day at King Edward mine.
 
The children were buzzing about the mine for days after telling their friends snippets of the way the tin was mined and myself and my husband learned a lot also. The crafts that were designed to suit the children were well planned the children love their treasure boxes and use their miners hats to dig for treasure's elsewhere. The more interactive for the children the better the panning for gold was a firm favourite.
 
Please keep us informed of other family days as we would love to come back again.

Cheryl"

Family Activities in the Making

As the year rolls on we will be developing more and more hands-on activities, as part of the new funding, to introduce around the site and museum. These will include panning for ‘gold’, dressing up to replicate some Victorian pictures, and eventually a complete interactive gallery in a restored building. Watch the website for exciting news about these future developments!
