  • We went out of curiosity and left pleasantly surprised. It's amazing to see the underground world that surrounds this dangerous and more than respectable profession that for so many years has led the bread to many families. You'll find from detailed texts about gunpowder and chemistry to the system used by the miners throughout history. If you want to see even more there is option to go down to the mine. It has no waste. Mention that the attention of their workers is also lovely.

  • Museum of mining and industry of Asturias, a very educational visit in many ways. On the one hand, I will say that I learned on a morning a lot more about the industrial revolution that in years of Institute. Hopefully get to change education, hopefully everything is real and touch, that you may live and enjoy, that allows us to move us and learn. And on the other hand... I've learned to appreciate even more the work of thousands of miners who have passed through these labyrinths underground, who have lost many hours of light and above all those who did not return to see her. An I work so hard, with much risk... and you could be doing it lying or kneeling if they had luck. Passing by some as narrow as the body holes, drag to carry a salary, well deserved, House. Thanks dad and thanks to all the miners in capital letters.

  • This is a different museum where at the top we can see the machines and all the history of the mines in the region, and at the bottom where we took a lift, which makes us feel like miners going to work, we can get down to the mine and witnessed the work conditions HO in a mine off and fully prepared to receive tourists

  • World class museum about the history of mining in Asturias and in general. The tour of a "mine" below the building is very well done and conveys a great sense of the working conditions and technology. Also has a great exhibition on the history of explosives and chemistry as well as sections on medicine, scientific instruments etc. We spent 3h+ here - definitely worth a visit!
  • Very interesting exhibition and very friendly people.
  • A hidden treasure. Large museum with lots of mining equipment and information about the mining process. Most interesting is the tour below the museum which shows how mining has been performed over the last 200 years or so in Asturias.
  • Interesting and entertaining museum.
  • We visited the museum in March, 2011 while staying in Oviedo. This was one of the most interesting museums we've seen in Europe, or home in the US. We'd been to some other mining museums in California and Arizona, 2 other places known for extensive mining in the past--one of these was a copper mine, another a gold mine. However, the museum in Asturias was all about mining in this area, which was for coal, and while we had a guided tour of a simulated mine (as opposed to the actual mine, as with the other 2 I'd mentioned), the overall experience was very memorable. The displays in the above ground portion of the museum were extensive, and the guided tour quite good. The museum staff were personal, very well-informed and enthusiastic about their subject. Truly world class!
