“our school visit”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

our school East Devonport Primary went there today and we liked it we didn't have much time to look at all the art work but it was good. We found some fools gold, my favourite was when we went through the tunnel

“eye opening”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I had avoided watching the saga of the miners trapped when it happened, as it seemed to permeate every media outlet constantly. But here you'll find an excellent exhibition about the disaster that gives you a really good idea of what the trapped miners and their rescuers went through, which was just mind boggling. Best is a replica of the space they were trapped in. I didn't expect to but I really enjoyed this museum. Well done everyone who set it up.
