  • The castle contains 4 exhibitions: the first dedicated to mining materials, the second to the history of the city and the mines from its inception until the birth of Slovenia in the years ' 90, the third on the Spanish Mercury mines (to which they are linked) and the fourth To the local activity of Tombolo.

Very friendly and helpful staff: only small handicap is a lack of more explanations in English (especially in the salt of mineral materials) and maybe someone in Italian, but they are not fundamental.
