Fascinating exploration of ancient mine workings. Disability access and young children not recommended. Otherwise if you don't mind the enclosed nature of the mine workings it's like travelling backwards in time.

Not cheap but worth it if your interests lie in this direction. You take yourself round passages which give some idea of what it might have been like to work there sometime between Bronze age and Victorian era!! Not good for very small children or those who don't like confined spaces as some of passage are narrow and you need... More

What an amazing place! A most unexpected delight and wonderfully preserved. The information provided is excellent and the walk through the mine is really exciting. This attraction makes a visit to The Great Orme complete.

Nice little visit for the kids and adults alike to gain some insight to what's under your feet! The museum takes around an hour to go around with an interesting trip underground albeit somewhat cramped in parts!
