We’ve been to the museum a few times now and always find something new. It’s great to learn about Cornwalls history and the heritage of mining. Especially as my family all worked for English China Clays for many years in the past as well.

Such a great place with a fab cafe and a great adventure playground. It’s a great place for families and free. The museum is also really interesting and great for all ages, although mine love the outdoor areas the most right now.
