  • This Centre is the result of the transformation of the former Mine of Lousal a museological cores. Two of these poles allow a large visitors ' interaction with fun games, multimedia and diversified activities to aprodundarmos our knowledge on the subject of mineral extraction. One of the Poles, which is visited with a guide from the Center, has a collection of manufacturing equipment that belonged to the premises of the mine, including all electric generators and their engines, as well as compressed air pumps which supplied air to the equipment at the mine. There's yet another visiting pole which is also performed with the accompaniment of a technician from the Center and that is an old mine Gallery. It's a visit that lasts about 2 hours and should not be missed. For those who want to visit this Center recommend enough even in the morning, in order to have time to visit all cores and be able to do the tour of the mine, which occurs at about 16:00. In the space of the Center, in one of the old buildings of the complex, there is a very nice restaurant where you can make a great meal. One last note to highlight for the team of the center that is an extreme friendliness and willingness to support visitors in the various núclos of the Centre. In short: a must-see!

  • Really interesting museum, helpful staff, beautifully preserved machine room. Clean facilities. Nearby restaurant is good.
  • The restaurant is great and was really quiet. The environment is also very typical of the surrounding mine. Worth it.
  • We could not visit the mine, only at 16:00. The mine cience center is only a place with some pictures, microscopes and so on.. In the area you can walk, by free, around the mine area and two lakes. Nice and interesting walk
  • An amazing place!
  • Could be interesting, but the lack of care and support to visit make little dasafiadoras activities for younger children. These sites need constant maintenance.
