Come and have some summer holiday fun in the Museum. We are open from 10am every day and run mine tours at 11am & 1pm each day. We advise that you ‘phone and book places on the mine tours as they do fill up very quickly (01629 583834).

A visit to Temple Mine is very different from visits to other local mines – we only take small groups of around 18 people underground and you will be given a helmet to wear as some of the passages are quite low. In the mine you will see mining equipment that was commonly used in small mines in the early 20th century. After the tour your guide will show you how to pan for minerals.

In the Museum there are lots of hands-on activities as well as our famous climbing shaft and tunnels.
