The display of the mining accident was excellent ... and once past all that everything else was interesting. The entry cost was very reasonable and had a wonderful day out.”

“Very enjoyable and helpful staff. Well worth visiting and will recommend to others.”

“EXCELLENT! My wife and I found it fascinating. Did not realise it would be as big as it is and with all the old features make it more promising.”

“This centre provides a very comprehensive display of mining, and old time artifacts. You enter a museum first, and then onto special walkways which go through mining sites which still have the machinery in place. The displays and information is very interesting. The museum houses a cross section of mining and social history. They also have a very comprehensive souvenir and gift shop. A very well done site.”
