Visited the Centre to find about the mine collapse tragedy, and learnt so much more. There is so much history and interactive displays for all the family. Make sure you have plenty of time, because you can easily spend the whole day here. Also purchased the Tamar Triple Pass. Both the other attractions as also well worth it. Playtpus House and Seahorse World also well worth a visit. We did all three in one day but it was very rushed.

Planned to go to this museum on this trip to Tasmania and I was glad I did. Magnificently presented museum with informative people all willing to tell stories about the place.

Very interesting and well set out, this Centre was worth a visit. Acceptable entry fee, very clean toilets and excellent gift shop as well as a very extensive and informative mine heritage centre. There were lots of fun things to do for all ages and we had a really good time there.

We spent longer than expected here. Like most we were interested in the great mine rescue of 2006. That was done well . Other parts of the museum were really interesting as well. Old telephone display, old machinery, miners hut, interactive panning for gold, history of the area. The volunteer at the desk encouraged us to obtain a 3 pass ticket for the mine plus Platypus house and Seahorse world just up the road at Beauty Point. This is well worth it as you get the 3 passes a little cheaper.
