This place isn't greatly advertised and I only came across it through Tripadvisor. The center is run by very enthusiastic volunteers. We were warned that the actual museum was cold and it certainly was, but there was lots to see. One of the volunteers asked if we wanted to be guided around and we accepted. He was interesting and also we had a laugh with him.
The actual mine was also cold,so wrap up warm! We were taken around by an ex-miner who, as his colleague said, could talk for Britain. The tour was meant to be 45 minutes, but I think it was more like 90!
All the volunteers were friendly and talktative and obviously love being there. They're hoping to start actual mining again to supply local steam trains. Good luck to them.
