    Much more than a museum. Before visiting the Gallery path explanation extraction mine activities, then the tour outside through settlements with "view" on the complexity of the production of the mercury and finally the multimedia Museum. These last have seen so many but this is really top notch, the search for the "innovative" factor to understand the message of the Museum was really boost and reached very high levels beyond that, fully, its goal Of Mining Museum Park will especially appreciate two aspects not necessarily usual that instead come here continually reproduced and then become central to the world's mining exhibition in Abbadia : the centrality of the person and relationship mine/territory that has developed over the years. Both these aspects are absolutely available and exposed in great detail for the most demanding vsitatore. Very good indeed.

    I've visited other mining museums but this is one of the most interesting. Start with a ride of about an hour on a train with old wagons in a gallery rebuilt, on tour show how you changed the work in the mines, very good the boy to explain and lots of info that I didn't know. Then a very interesting meeting with a former miner and finally videos on mine and community. I recommend it!!!

  • We were visiting this museum that I regret not having it could see everything because, for bureaucratic problems, Italian stuff that don't work and that we should avoid, the keepers may not show, visitors, all exhibits that open the doors to what has been a way of life and a culture of those areas. Despite this, the party, owns a stupendous that, however, is nothing compared to the guide that accompanies with trenino and I thank them publicly. This gentleman, who worked inside the mine in recent years as a laboratory technician, has left us with a comprehensive competence and endless passion well over what any multimedia or exhibit could give us. The whole group has struck up with him an open discussion beautiful I wish it never ended. I extend to him and to all employees a profound wish for the institutions where the entire building so that visitors can be introduced, as I was, in the world of mining, that despite the economic assessments, I now understand, were to be counted among our excellence

  • A modern museum to understand the past and reflect on the exploitation of the soil and the rights of workers. The exhibition spaces have been expanded and reequipped just over a month ago. The visit includes a path on the train in the underground passages and the explanation of life in mine by experienced guides. My guides were Fernando, who has personally lived the last years of the mine, mining and Dario, a young man who told us how was the work of the miner. The halls are filled with important historical documents, such as video or audio interviews of miners. The Museum's Education Department offers courses dedicated to schools. Very recommended.
