We all enjoyed the beautiful views and the information about mining. However the surprise of the day was the piece of installation art there. It was called Crosscut and it was an immersive piece about Cornish mining. The illusion of the sheer depth of the mineshaft was magical alongside the audio of real life miners talking about their experiences underground and as a community. Crosscut was enjoyed by the whole family from grandparents down to our own children. What a great addition to Geevor mine. Thank you.
Geevor Tin Mine is more than just a museum, It has so much historic detail in every part of the site. You can feel the heart and passion that's been used to bring the mine back to life.. The mining experience of the miners has been used in every detail, even the talk by one of the actual mine employees was so fascinating, he brought the site alive once more.... Amazing piece of History
