I visited in 2008 and I thought it was very good!! I liked the tour of the mine espesaly!But I think that thete should have been more interactiv things in the museum!

Toured the Geevor Mine and Museum in September 2012 and found it fascinating. Some Cornish miners settled in my county in Maryland in the 1850s to work in the copper mines.
