  • Extremely organized and interesting! Visitors descend into the lodge, looking at how is bauxite mining through representations and then monitor the relevant report and videos that complete the whole picture! A must see for visitors!

  • Very organized and very polite and the two times I went. Interesting views and interactivity, especially for children, to inform nice way the history of the area, but also for the production of aluminium. Also, the exhibits in the building have enough interest. As for the tunnel is very nice experience! The train is all the money! the exhibits are also very nice, give you a sense of what really took place in space time that worked. Comprehensive tour, staff prothymotato to explain any of yours questions. Finally there is a shop with very nice and all sorts of souvenirs and ksmimatakia!

  • Learn everything about aluminum and bauxite! You feel the people's life in the mines and with the truck and the helmets you see the extraction from inside. Great temperature difference if you go summer. Terrible experience! It deserves!
