Underground at the National Mining Museum
Travel around underground like a miner! To enter the mine, visitors travel, just like the workers did, on the mine railway for about 20 minutes. Then they continue on foot. On the way, a museum guide explains all about the work of the men who used to spend the whole day in the underground tunnels. Most of the museum’s collection is housed in the actual mine, so the tools and machines are displayed in their natural environment, so to speak, and bear witness to over 100 years of technical progress in iron ore mining. The tours of the mine last about 1.5 hours and are always for groups, escorted by a museum guide.
