  • On a rainy day to the museum, in order to have some fun to do. We had a bad friendly Lady at the Bali that everything good. Eventually, we had 2 tours. Impressive!! A very knowledgeable guide that many knew to tell. Nice to see that this is all so good.

  • Ride the mine train is a must! Should you make in any case. We have not perceived the two other guides, but you beings almost the whole day there spend

  • The Museum is a large area that consists of many buildings and mine entrances. We had a tour with a Danish-speaking German guide. It may be recommended if one is not so experienced with the German language, since very few signs are translated with English language explanation.

  • A fascinating place and really worth the visit. It has been well maintained but not modernised into a 'tourist attraction'. Make sure you take at least one of the underground tours (more, if possible) to see the tunnels and the working conditions that miners lived in over the centuries.
  • Simply fascinating. Whether it makes a tour underground or above ground visited the mine, the entrance money is well invested in each case. I experienced there very competent staff that hung in a whole mining area with heart and passion of the time knew how to report.

  • Site that is worth the trip despite the Museum part where the debility of museography is particularly accomplished--harmonious set of industrial buildings well preserved and very representative - Museum supposed to show (apparently?) different aspects of technology, history of... of the site. See last so has time to waste. -mineralogical collection beautifully presented - remarkable use of old temporary facilities of processing of the ore for the presentation of exhibitions. Proof that museography can be at the service of the visitor and the objects. -guided under the ground with route by train. Very interesting for all audiences. -guided tour underground, walk, a set of galleries and installations on the theme of water (water, use of hydraulic energy...). Pretty difficult course that requires good shoes and headphones (supplied!). Exceptional interest which justifies the trip to Goslar
