Small museum in the center of town. Interesting exhibits, great for both adults and children. Short but fascinating movie at the end; watch it and, whatever you do for a living, you'll be glad you do that and not this! Recommended.

This looked like a very small museum with some typical museum things: Rocks, tools for mining and so on. But it also contains rooms with examples of how it looked down in the mines, some small-scale models of mining technology that moved around and a...More

If you are with kids and want to impress them, this is the place to go. But even for adults it is worth visiting before we completely forget about the hard work of our grandfathers' generation.

A small museum, but what we liked best were the wonderfully made working models of all the machines and mining equipment from the past

An informative museum about the mining industry, with miniature machines that is a favourite with children and adults alike. Plan about 1-1,5 hours.

We stumbled upon this Museum while walking the streets and decided to take a look. I guess we went during a very slow day/week/month, as we were followed the whole time by the woman, who would quickly walk ahead into the next room to turn...More
