We had some time and had never been in a salt mine, so decided to go here. The information was interesting - I never knew anything about mining salt. Could have learned all of it on Wikipedia I'm sure, but it was fun to do...More

Absolutely loved it, 2 adults, 2 children. From the train into the mine, the slides, the little boat ride. Kids were captivated. We had the English audio guide, which was really good. None of the audio clips were that long, so no losing interest. Photos...More
