Unique open air museum based on the ‘Greatest Copper Port in Queen Victoria’s Empire’. A tramway ride along the Devon bank of the river Tamar and then on into an historic copper mine with illuminated display of mining techniques is one of the many attractions. Three indoor museums and outdoor exhibits cover a thousand years of history.
