Don't expect a traditional exhibition about coal mining. Instead you'll hear, feel, smell and see how the conditions were the miners worked under/at/in. Partly it's an interactive experience, partly some traditional features of a mine were displayed in new kind of way, kind of artistical...More

old mine complex which gives you an idea of the circumstances andd conditions in which the miners had to work. The old mine site has been renovated in a beautiful way and has now become a center for culture, arts and inovation.
