Copper Kingdom Amlwch

Copper Kingdom Amlwch Temporarily closed for repairs. The Copper Kingdom exhibition centre is located on the port quayside

The Copper Kingdom exhibition centre is located on the quayside in the picturesque fishing harbour of Amlwch port, Anglesey, North Wales. This awarding winning centre tells the tale of the copper industry in the area. Copper has been mined at Parys Mountain since the Bronze Age. Following the “Great Discovery” 1768 the mine dominated the world price of copper. Over the next few years’ other indust

ries grew up based on need to process, transport and exploit the copper found at the mountain. The Copper Kingdom exhibition centre is a family friendly location that can accommodate all ages. The Centre is wheel chair accessible and has a lift that will allow access to the first floor where an abundance of information is available i.e cinema, interactive touch table, children’s play area, information boards, artefacts. You will find that the workers (or Werin in Welsh) found life somewhat harder than the mine managers. You will also have chance to visit our re-creation of an underground mine.
