We revisited Geevor recently, and while admiring the Hard Rock Museum displays detailing mining processes and products, minerals and so on, we felt that the human cost of mining history was lost in the welter of detail. This was not so formerly and we remember being so struck by the hardship and exploitation the miners and female workers suffered. The new approach glosses over the moral implications of Geevor's history to a great extent, which is a real pity.

Thank you for the most informative and enjoyable experience that our society had during our visit on Friday 27 May 2011. A special thank you to Janet who had to cope with such a large number and make her self heard, and so knowledgeable. Thank you again.

we visited Geevor on24-02-12 and enjoyed a very informative tour carried out by Eddy with much humour and enthusiasm along the way, explaining both the mechanical and humman toil and hardship that is mining. Thank you very much, we hope to return with grandchildren

This was one the most fabulous days out I have spent with my Year 3 class! They were informed, challenged and had an adventure in the rain and the wind, which made it feel all the more genuine! Meur ras Geevor

Thank you for such an interesting time. It was fascinating to get a glimpse of how harsh conditions would have been for the workers of the day. To have so much of the mine site still open to visitors is a credit to you all, to hear how the tin was retrieved and then to walk through underground, seeing where the workers had to endure some pretty rough conditions was inspiring, well done.
