Peak District Mining Museum & Temple Mine
Peak District Mining Museum & Temple Mine information
An educational introduction to the mining history of Matlock is provided by this enthusiast-run museum. Set in an old Victorian dancehall, kids can wriggle through its maze of tunnels and shafts while adults browse historical displays. At noon and 2pm daily (weekends only November to March) you can go into the workings of the Temple Mine and pan for 'gold' (well, shiny minerals).
