  • What to say? The main comment is interesting, because unusually. And if you go into the details of the Organization, everything is not so rosy. And here's why. I certainly understand that the enterprise is live, but if you were engaged in "tourist destination", then please arrange. There is no overall collection zone groups, nor the place where you can relax, withdraw cash, buy tea/coffee/water, and go to this place is the staff. Group gathering with the issuance of helmets, jackets (BTW, those same workers which means dirty, dimensionless) and coaching, took 15-20 minutes. Standing in this outfit in the Sun in 35-degree heat. It's clear that in these tulupah all uparilis′. In the cave passed vigorous step up to the Museum. The guide told us something but heard only by those who walked in the forefront. And it was not possible to reach any of the Grotto and give general info about caves, enterprises, etc. The museum tour was conducted quickly, briefly, and not told anything. It can be seen that guide man, it does not work to stories the norm would be for the extraction of gypsum run. But the company organized tourist destination, make the same normal! No species, which are collected in the Museum, nor about the exhibits was not discussed. The bare facts about the cave and plant. Inside the cave of fear "is made, suitable for children. BUT! young, and adults not allowed is no longer that. Total tour 30 minutes maximum. And for the sake of this drive for 120 km from NN? Probably relying on children, "Jurassic Park" made quite good, you can spend 3 hours in this place. On the whole, satisfied with the trip, but only because it was interesting to see/visit. The second time I will not go. Organizers: place in terms of tourism perspective (near Homestead, is a notable and Paškovyh), but you have to get the concept.

  • For visitors over the age of 14 years, fun to visit a real mine. The junior has a Petting Zoo and "Jurassic Park"

  • A very interesting place, definitely notable. Been there twice (once with colleagues, once with his wife with group tour) Donning issued a warm jacket, a helmet and a flashlight and listening to the safety group steps into the existing mine at a depth of 70 meters, then along the track dizelevoza is held in the museum itself (the whole way takes somewhere 400 m). At once I wish to warn my wife and earlier visited caves (caves of Frasassi (Italy), karstic massif Moravian Karst (Czech Republic), the cave of Zeus (Greece, Crete)) and everywhere feel perfectly, and here it was very bad, almost to the point of unconsciousness, but reacted in time to monitor the security officer and a pair of liquid ammonia led her feelings (wife said that since childhood she bad given Arzamas route (we get) Although mountain serpentines shifts fine). We even were able to continue sightseeing Museum and listen great local tour guide. Exhibits also pleases, especially liked the transparent wall of gypsum, which can only exist in the conditions created by this museum. Children under 14 are denied entrance to the cave, but there is an alternative in the form of mechanical dinosaurs Park and a small Petting Zoo.
