This year, summer comes to Skinningrove bringing with it a full and exciting programme of family events from the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum. Drop the children off at our kids-only club or bring the whole family down to discover our wide range of themed crafts events. Learn about our natural environment, go rock-pooling to uncover the marine life of the Cleveland coasts, compete in our horribly historical Olympic challenges then experience a Zeppelin raid as we shelter in the mine!
For the second year in a row, the museum is delighted to receive TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence. As a voluntary run organisation, it means a lot to both the management team and to our wider community of volunteers who come to the museum to provide tours, to assist with school groups and education, to look after our collections and to ensure that the site is well maintained.
