We are planning an exciting programme of events for 2019. Our annual free Open Day on Sunday 28th April and there are nature workshops, and more...
Our annual Open Day is on Sunday 28th April from 10:00 to 16:00.
You will have a chance to meet and talk with our knowledgeable guides who will be able to interpret Cornish mining for you. We will be demonstrating the historic mining equipment, and will run the unique Californian Stamps so that you can experience the sounds of tin mining 120 years ago.
There will be musical entertainment throughout the day and we will be inviting children to take part in workshops under the experinced leadership of our education officer.
We have a large car park and can accommodate wheelchair users. Food will be available from the excellent Croust Hut cafe. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
