Killhope Mining Museum allows you to explore how this lead mine operated and what working and living there was like in the 19th century.

Killhope has a great exhibition, and a cafe, with the 19th century mine buildings and machinery giving a fascinating insight into the life of the mine.

The Tramper can be used to explore the outdoor area of the museum and to see any demonstrations from the guides. 

Weather can get quite wild here! For safety reasons, the staff may need to close the site at a short notice. Therefore, it is essential to give a contact telephone number for the day of your booking in case the site has to be closed.
