King Edward Mine Museum

Welcome to King Edward Mine Museum which specialises in the mining history of Cornwall. The mine dates from the 19th century and most of the equipment in the mill has been restored to working order.

• Come for a guided tour of the mill with one of our experts
• Ideal for children
• Featured on BBC2 'Edwardian Farm'
• See the Mineral Tramway Exhibition and use the adjacent cycleway
• Great attraction for wet Cornish weather!

The exhibits in the museum tell the remarkable story of how this mine has survived almost intact for over 100 years. The visitor is shown how the mine complex developed and then is taken on a guided tour of the mill to see much of the rare equipment in use as it would have been in the early 1900s. Much of the machinery in the mill (where tin ore is processed) is amongst the last of its kind in the world. The museum is also a valuable resource for local schools.
