Morwellham Quay served silver, tin and copper mines in the area
Trustees of a Victorian mining museum and attraction in Devon have said they still hope to keep it open.
A key meeting was held by the trustees on Saturday about Morwellham Quay, which is on the verge of liquidation.
It follows a decision by Devon County Council to withdraw future funding, leaving a £1m shortfall.
However James Cole from the Morwellham and Tamar Valley Trust said there were other stakeholders involved and a meeting will take place on Tuesday.
Trustees have previously said the open-air attraction would only go into administration "as a last resort".
Annual visitor numbers have dwindled steadily from 150,000 in the 1970s to 50,000, although Mr Cole said last weekend was one of the busiest of the year.
In its heyday, about 300 people were employed at Morwellham Quay, which served the silver, tin and copper mines in the area.
