An award-winning, evocative museum and visitor centre based around the historic port and mine workings on the River Tamar. Here in the heart of the spectacular Tamar Valley, amidst towering cliffs and gently rolling farmland, a lost world lives again.
Costumed staff welcome visitors to the restored
port and help to transport you back to the
bustling 1860s when heaps of gleaming copper ore
filled the quays and a forest of ships' masts
lined the river. All human life is here as you
explore the busy assay office, marvel at the
over-crowded miner's cottages and stroll through the delightful, walled gardens.

Set in the centre of Tavistock’s prime
recreational area, close to Meadowlands Swimming Pool, the Library
and the town’s historic Meadows, the 19th Century Grade II listed
warehouses known as The Wharf were converted from buildings used to
store copper ore, tin and lead from numerous mines in the area.
