As the name says the museum is about mining, but it is of interest even for non-geologists as it chronicles the history of the island, exports and exploitation, both of the natural resources and the people who worked the mines. Small enough to "do" in...More

The museum was OK but very small and I think would be best visited by someone who is very passionate about the subject-matter (mining and different types of materials mined, production and transportation, etc).
