The Mining Museum at the Silver Mountain Experience houses a collection of hard rock mining machinery, tools and ephemera, reflecting the story of Silver-Lead ore extraction in the Cambrian Mountains.

Historical features on the site are continuously being restored with the invaluable help of volunteers from the Mines Preservation Trust. Keep an eye out for more historical developments in the near future!

Experience guided tour 'A Miner's Life', which immerses you in the original and rare setting of our 250+ year old Silver-Lead mine both above and below ground, and with exclusive access to the Ore Crusher. Discover the fascinating facts of mining life in by-gone times as it would have been seen through the eyes of a miner.

Follow the Miner's Trail to explore one of the best preserved mining sites in the UK. Begin at the Giant Waterwheel, work your way around the Mine Offices, explore the Mine Shafts and finish at the Mining Museum.
