  • Very good organization, includes three parts, 1) view informational videos about the mining process, 2) update for all stages until the final production of aluminum, and throwback, with maquettes, photographs and exhibits and 3) visiting the old arcade (18 m below the ground), boarding the train and tour of the various parts, which represent with models and old machines. The tour is not tedious, because every visitor, modified headphones and listening to a recorded tour. The area is safe and the staff very polite. The old arcade, you can take and photos. The cost of the ticket (12 euros for adults), I find it quite logically, the whole tour lasts 1.5 hours.

  • Terrible idea of undertaking a tour of the mine Gallery to inactive, the historical path in the process and mining methods. Too good the Museum with the models and exhibits! There should be available optokoakoystikoy material (CD, notes, books) for anyone interested. Need more advertising the remarkable effort. In conclusion unforgettable experience!!!

  • The visit to vagoneto was quite interesting. I believe that is for children 6 years and above minimum and that the ticket 5 euros for children up to 6 years old are bitter. The episkechi lasted at least 11/2 time and had three stages. Definitely the most interesting was the visit to the galleries.
