With so much to see at Geevor it can be hard to know where to begin. Geevor is much more than a mine. It is also the story of people and of a landscape.
Here are our top five suggestions to get you started:
1. The Underground Tour
The underground tour takes you from the light into the dark, from the 20th century mine down into the early days of mining. In the Mexico shaft it is easy to image Victorian miners, men and boys, working long hard hours in the dark and cramped conditions.
2. The Hard Rock Museum
Hard Rock Museum was opened in Oct 2008 and tells the story of mining at Geevor.
3. The Dry
Take in the atmosphere and ambience of the miners dry, which has been left almost exactly as it was on the day the last working miner left.
4. Looking Down Victory Shaft
Below the iconic headgear you can look down Victory shaft. Can you imagine travelling in one of those 'cages', or even climbing down ladders to the bottom of Victory Shaft 480 metres below?
5. Mineral Panning
Panning can be found on the Tin Floors in the Mill. Have a go at this ancient method of prospecting for valuable heavy metals and you can keep anything you find!
