My wife and I visited about a year ago and were stunned by the whole experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and obviously loved to tell visitors the story of the mine. And what a story! After that, to go down into the mine to see firsthand how it was done was almost a religious experience. My wife and I have rather different tastes in museums but we agreed that this was the most memorable of any of its type that we have ever seen. will not regret it.

One would think Saturday being the most popular day of the week, you would be open!

Twice we have wanted to visit you when we have had visitors. Both times (being Saturdays) you have been shut. I'm amazed you can afford to lose so much business on the busiest day of the week. GEEVOR REPLY... Thank you for taking time to comment. Obviously we are sorry that having made the effort to get here we were closed. However, unlike most attractions we do not close during the winter months, and are open for 6 days a week throughout the year. It may come of some surprise to you that Saturday is not the busiest day of the week for Geevor, but in fact the quietest. We made the decision to open 7 days a week in 2009 for July and August (having also done so in trials in previous years), and it did not make commercial sense. Saturday was by far the quietest day of the week. We have many educational tours during the year so closing during weekdays is not an option, and Sundays are busy. Therefore in line with the National Trust in the far west of Cornwall (Levant Mine, St. Michael's Mount, Trengwainton Gardens) we do not open on Saturdays.

Very interesting tour. Amazing history and great to have an experienced guide underground. As a Geologist myself, I found it fascinating and I'm pleased to see this site preserved for the general public to visit and understand the SW's mining history.

My wife and I visited the museum on Friday 6th February and spent all day there, I think we may have been the last to leave. Guides were very friendly and informative. Thoroughly recommend a visit.
