Great place to visit
What a fascinating place. I had no idea how clay was mined and left very knowledgeable. So much information available with films, information boards and models, etc. very well presented and informative. Well worth a visit.

Eye opening with a good coffee shop. Well organised and lots to see and investigate. We knew little about the clay industry before we went but got a good insight into the history of it all.

An interesting day out
One of the best places I have been to visit whilst staying in Cornwall. I was greeted my a lovely lady who explained things perfectly. Very informative and in a lovely peaceful setting. Walking around at your own pace it is very well laid out. Plenty of walks which take you to other places away from the main attraction. Very dog friendly.

They also have a lovely cafe which is reasonably priced which has seating both inside and out.

Please give them your support if you're in this part of Cornwall.

Industrial History
I try to visit Wheal Martyn at least once a year; not because I have a burning interest in industrial history but to support a museum that showcases one of the industries at the heart of the “real” Cornwall. It is a reminder that Cornwall is not all “quaint” harbour villages where fishermen mended their nets on the quays but has a “gritty” side too. The area around Wheal Martyn is a reminder that the china clay industry is still producing. Those rolling hills are grassed spoil heaps. There is just one conical heap left near St Austell. It is protected from being flattened.

When I visited in 2020 restrictions had just been lifted allowing staff on site and it was noticeable that it had been closed. What a difference this year!

The building work has been completed and the new visual displays can be seen. The waterwheel and pumps were working. Displays had been smartened and refreshed. I absolutely loved the photographs taken by people of the local area taken during lockdown. These are displayed all around the site. This time I didn’t walk up to the viewing point where a working pit can be seen – the huge trucks look like matchbox toys.

In the new gallery was an amazing exhibition (now ended) of the paintings by local artist Kurt Jackson. He worked outside during the winter painting scenes around Little Johns pit. It was good to see paintings of Cornwall that didn’t feature the sea!

The displays are something of an eye opener as to the conditions under which people worked. Sadly the interactive items are not available due to Covid but hopefully they will be soon.

I recommend a visit to this museum if you have an interest in the culture and history of Cornwall.

History brought to life.

Visited here many times. Wonderful woodland walks with information boards detailing the history of Wheal Martyn. The viewing platform gives a great view of a working China clay mine. Museum exhibits excellently laid out, and of a wide variety. Lots of information and history about the local area.
Also visited the cafe - food hit and fresh and great quality. Definitely worth a visit. Free entry for a year with one admission price is a bargain.

A really interesting and fun day out
2021年8月 • 夫妻情侣
A very well organised and interesting day out. It started with an interactive walk through the museum which then led out to a choice of walks around the clay works at various levels. There are informative plaques attached to all historic buildings and machinery.
There's a teddy bear hunt for the youngsters, a nature walk and a walk to the top to view a working clay pit.
Dogs are welcome throughout.
There is a shop and a lovely reasonably priced cafe.

The only negative points were there were not enough bins around and the toilets are all near the bottom and not very well sign posted.

So much more pleasing to be here than Eden Project.
Much less expensive.
Lovely cakes in the cafe which looks to be used by locals too.

Great Trip Down Memory Lane
2021年7月 • 夫妻情侣
Our visit was a trip down memory lane having taken children to Wheal Martyn as part of an annual residential field trip to Cornwall. It was good to see the new reception area and the well laid out and informative exhibits. The Historic Trail and walk up to the Pit View was well with the effort after an excellent lunch in the cafe - the homity pie and treacle tart were homemade delights.

All the staff were most friendly and welcoming while Richard was a font of knowledge and not just about china clay!

We look forward to taking advantage of our annual pass when next in the area.

A great introduction to the history of China Clay in Cornwall
Wheal Martyn greatly exceeded expectation offering a well laid out collection of fascinating artefacts and well preserved remains giving insight into the history of China Clay in the West Country. The tour offered plenty of information, dynamic exhibits including three water wheels, and interactive displays. There was a clear sign of care and a passion for the area, and the available brochure is very informative.
