Moseley Toy & Train Museum

Based at Tumblydown Farm, Moseley is now the home of a number of working engines once used in nearby South Crofty Tin Mine. Lovingly restored by enthusiasts, these now work on the tracks at the museum. A great destination for kids and grown-ups alike, Moseley Museum showcases the engineering prowess behind the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.
