The staff at the Museum of Lead Mining are committed to providing you with a safe and enjoyable visitor experience. While we are all learning to ‘live with Covid’, we continue to encourage visitors to wear face coverings indoors. Meanwhile, the following precautions remain in place. Please make sure you book an arrival slot and tickets in advance on our website. This helps us to monitor and restrict – if needed – the numbers of visitors on site. Sanitising stations will remain in place, at entry and exit points. Protective screens will remain at till points. Increased cleaning regimes are being maintained. We have a timed entry to the Mine, Library and Museum to ensure that we can safely manage visitor numbers. All timed entry tickets should be pre-booked through our on-line ticket programme on our website or by telephone to 01659 74387. Small groups of up to twelve people can visit together. We may not be able to admit you if you have not pre-booked your ticket or if you arrive early or late. All payment is by debit or credit card, and contactless payment is preferred on site. Please note the mine is not suitable for children under 5. Our ticket booking time is the start of your mine tour, after which you will be taken to the library for the next part before ending at the museum to wander around at your leisure. We then invite you to take a break at the tea room for some light refreshments. Your ticket is valid for the season which ends on the 30th September, so you are able to visit again at no additional cost.
