  • The Museum was opened on the territory of oil shale mines closed. Many authentic artifacts (machines and equipment). Guided tours-former Miner, you can descend into the mine. A lot of things you can touch-open hands, sit in the cockpit of the mining machine. All highly recommend.

  • Visited this Museum a group of children. The youngest 6-7 years was scary to walk through tunnels. But a trip to the miner's train all really enjoyed. The kids got a kick out of the work of the various mining mechanisms, parents from the story about hard work miners. Personally I am most amazed by the fact that mined slate otseivalsja from the gangue by hand women. And those mountains of slag, which is on territory (height more multi-storey house), is the result of manual labor! Now that was just really don't understand! Memory has taken a piece of Slate =))) from the cons guide telling interesting, but with such a strong accent that understand its adults only.

  • The old mine, mined slate. In addition to a tour inside, you could buy a jeep trip in the surrounding area. Also very curious landscapes, industrial. With regard to the mine. You will be given a robe and helmet, take a ride on the underground train, see how slate was mined in the last century. And finally, fed soup, similar to a hodgepodge.
