I was looking for the cross-section map showing the hundreds of miles and levels of tunnels and shafts in Geevor - as in the 3 dimensional scale wooden model you have behind the glass wall near reception. I really think this would inform people more about how fantastic and HUGE a place this mine is.

By far the best attraction in this part of Cornwall. Something for everyone, very well organised and the friendliness and passion of those who work there really makes the difference. The museum section is the only one I have ever visited anywhere in the world where NONE of the exhibits are broken! 10 out of 10.
