We decided to check this tour out as not far from Launceston and the price was amazing (under $10). We were both surprised how much was included and the staff were very friendly and knowledgable, we took our time and there was plenty of interactive displays which was a nice change. Highly recommended!!

If you are a mining buff or have a strong interest in the mine rescue, it is worth the trip. I found it a little boring, although there was a lot of information to take it, it was not very interactive or interesting. It was not expensive, just aswell as it did not take us much time to visit.

We went to this centre in February this year. It was much better then I thought it would be. It was very open and larger then I thought.

Although a large portion deals with the mine directly there are lots of other things from around the region like how the Batman Bridge was built. The museum is very hands on and allows people to touch and play with things which is always fun.

You have the opportunity to take many photographs and enjoy the trip, I would think you could get around it in an hour to an hour and a half
