  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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 !
  • Place worth visiting
