    RM2 entrance for adults to this neat and well kept museum. Informative, giving some insights into the tin mining industry in the area. I wish there were more stories from the miners living during that time, and more information on the dangers of the mines and working conditions of the miners, to help us understand and appreciate what they went through.

    Note that the mining tunnel (about 1km away) is still not open and hasn't been for a while. Rumour has it that it will be reopened soon. I feel a big part of the experience is missing without the tunnel.

    Not a bad museum. Bit sparse on information but has enough to keep you interested for a bit. I would have liked to see some audio visual content talking with miners who had worked the mines and more about the decline.
