  • Kohtla Shale Oil Museum is a very special well-preserved mine; the visitors come out to walk in the roadways, running in the train on the Rails inside the mine and can consume a miner solid lunch with vodka. Can be recommended.

  • Traveled to Museum family: 4 adults and a child 10 years of age. The site stated that if the phone number is less than 10 people, the earth does not descend. But we are fortunate to have arrived once 2 person and 7-person group took place a full tour. Issue jackets, helmets, underground water, dripping tunnels large, swept on the trolley. Story guide is very interesting, because the Group was bilingual, the guide was talking in two languages. Mine is impressive and work people too. It is better to write in advance to the Museum or call, then you will say exactly when there are group. Tickets are not cheap, but the Museum would recommend!

  • From the old mines have made the Museum! Even such informative! The old building was repaired, even cozy inside. There is a café. Heat in the main building, that winter was pleased very much. Descended into the mine. The uncle worked for more than 20 years in it! Knows all the nooks and corners. Oriented as Mole:). Drove on old train! That drove the miners. The extent of exposure. Went long. Not two steps. There is an audio guide. On the interactive screens you can familiarize with the information in different languages. Including in Russian. At the bottom is pretty cool. Dress warmer. Everyone without exception, even the kids, throw helmets and special clothes. What would the collar not dripping from the ceiling. We wrote about the visit in advance. There were three, with son, 3.8 and even he was wondering:). Unconventionally, informative, great. Well done. The idea is super. Perhaps you can rarely visit such places. See with your own eyes, to truly understand, listen to and feel the atmosphere. Thank you. Advise. Success and prosperity.

  • As a tourist, this place wasn't terribly interesting. Just about every plaque had English translations and other ones. The issue for me came when my group went on tour in the mines and it was only in Estonian. While my Estonian is good, I of course had trouble understanding every detail in the underground but I was still entertained to know that this was how people used to mine.
  • Great experience of getting down a mine
  • A very interesting place to visit and leanr about how Estonia produces electricity
  • They offer awesome tours in mines
  • Очень классный музей, рекомендую всем посетить! This museum is very interesting and good, I recommend you to visit this place !
