  • We've tried to visit the mine and other points in Criciúma by January/18 and come across several posters of "layoffs". Disappointing! While most cities enjoy the vacation to show its attractions and explore your local tourism, Criciúma doesn't seem to have a care in the tourist service: phones are not met, and when emails come back tourists still insists on going personally the attraction match the doors closed in my face.. We at will!

  • The access is very complicated. There is no signage and google map tbm leads to the correct place. Asked in a bar and found easily after noa explain. The visit is very fast, 15 minutes, is very interesting and worth going to, but I think the site could very much more attractive, if there were more explanations about the miners, stories, there could be exposure of coal, etc. Is the only mine of Brazil display and the service is very good, although fast.

  • It is very exciting to know and relive the epic of coal mining. A perfect replica of the German locomotive can visit the mine and learn a lot. The guide knows the subject very well and is very witty. Worth the ride. Cheap, fun and instructive.

  • The place is even interesting, however, is very expensive for the ride they offer. Just consider elderly people over 65 years, ideally, 60. Instructor left something to be desired, it was more like fisherman with unfounded stories.

  • Closed for holidays during the entire month of January. Looks like a joke ... they could at least update the timetables in Google so we don't miss the trip.

  • Visit to an old coal mine turned off. At first goes through a small museum filled with memories of mining, then people embark on a small train, and enters into the mine, seeing the working conditions of the time, always accompanied by a guide who came to work in the mine. Visit right quickly and without great emotion, great for history and for children.

  • I went to the site and was closed. It was 11:00 in the morning on a Tuesday. On the internet the time indicated it was open from 9:00 h-17:00 h.
