  • A very interesting place, as it retains many original things of what was the work of the miners at the time. Guides you have to travel explaining you all the best and with the greater willingness. It is also excellent that open 365 days a year.

  • I like long visit this place tucked away in the forest. Recommend wear comfortable shoes and take the guided tour. The young man who gave us the explanation was very well prepared. The place does not receive any subsidy, so in the end a voluntary contribution is given. I loved that we were able to enter through the main tunnel and experience firsthand what experienced miners who in the Porfiriato were exploited and untainted. Much learning is obtained from this site.

  • Mining museum that gives you a glimpse of the boom the area experienced for an extended time. At the end of the tour don't miss the little rooom "Exposicion de Cristos" very interesting.  more »

  • This is a very cool place to visit. Walking back in the mine was a real treat. There's a lot to see and a lot to learn about the history of the area. They don't like you taking photos inside the museum itself, which disappointed me. But outside and in the mine, they allow photos. There is an astounding collection of crucifixes here. Walking through the mining operation, seeing the wall murals and everything else the place offers was great. There's also a little gift shop and the snack bar
  • Awesome place to see. No tours in English, but we had a wonderful experience. The tour guide was very nice, and they were very friendly. The drive down there was a little crazy, but totally worth it
  • History that is unknown. Sad to see that a gold mine didn't bring long term progress.
  • It's okay! This place is beautiful
  • Free exhibit!! Very interesting!
