Cornwall Residents’ Pass

From November 2018 to February 2019, Wheal Martyn is offering a discounted annual admission to all Cornwall residents so that they can come along and find out more about their clay mining roots.

Admission during these months is just £6.50 per adult and £5.50 per child (children under 5 are free) and for this price you can visit as often as you like for 12 months.  All you need to do is show proof of address to purchase your annual ticket. Read more here.

Please be aware that all children (under 16) must be accompanied by an adult when visiting the Museum.
Companions who are required to assist disabled visitors are admitted free of charge.

Please Gift Aid Your Admission

As a charity Wheal Martyn is able to claim an additional 25% on top of your admission fee at no extra cost to you, through the government’s Gift Aid scheme.  As long as you are a UK tax payer, all you need to do is sign a Gift Aid form upon entry to the museum.  Additional income secured through Gift Aid makes a massive difference to the work of the charity.  Thank you for your support!
