Treat the whole family to a great day out at Wheal Martyn!

Wheal Martyn is home to the UK’s only china clay mining museum. The museum tells the story of Cornwall’s largest mining industry, an industry still alive today.  The museum, set in 26 acres of grounds, incorporating a preserved Victorian clay works gives a fascinating insight into this important industry which shaped the lives, landscape and economy of Cornwall’s Clay Country and beyond.

As a charity, the museum provides opportunities for everyone to learn, be inspired by and interact with our vast collection of artefacts and archives, the built heritage and environment within our unique and special grounds.

Wheal Martyn is based around two former Victorian china clay works, much of which has been designated by English Heritage as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.  As a fully Accredited Museum, we care for and present a vast collection of industry-related objects, machinery, photographs and archives.

The museum provides unique opportunities for visitors to discover how china clay was mined, processed and used. Visitors can learn about the lives of those who lived and worked in the shadow of the ‘Cornish Alps’ and how china clay continues to shape the world today.


Your children will love tearing around and exploring everything there is to see at Wheal Martyn. There’s plenty to capture their imaginations from giant waterwheels to vintage trucks, a train plus a fantastic adventure play area where they can let off steam in the fresh air. Wheal Martyn is the perfect place to enjoy come rain or shine….


As you discover more about the fascinating china clay industry, past and present, in the indoor interactive centre you’ll find lots of family friendly interactive exhibits, a making and drawing area, dressing up, voice recordings and film footage giving you a virtual tour into a working clay pit.


Set off on the historic trail that takes you on a tour of the beautiful Victorian clay works (a Scheduled Ancient Monument) that reveal Wheal Martyn’s past life at the heart of this global industry. You’ll discover the fascinating way clay workers used to extract china clay and process it for use in products such as ceramics, plastics and paper. You will discover working waterwheels, the ‘flat rod’ tunnel and crib hut and lots more as well as get a feel for the conditions that so many Cornish men and women, young and old, worked in to produce the key ingredient used in so many items in ALL our everyday lives.


The former linhay building houses a range of interesting exhibitions giving an insight into aspects of the china clay industry ranging from geology and engineering to the uses of china clay and home life, while the transport yard is home to the our 1934 ERF lorry, 1916 Peerless lorry and many other transport exhibits including a locomotive.
