  • Fascinating and informative look into the history of mining in the region. Our kids really enjoyed it as well. The sheer size of these mines (many miles deep) when you look at the map on display versus the relatively tiny distance the ride goes in is really mind boggling. Our guide told us that some of the miners had to ride over 3 hours on a cart like ours to get to where they would actually work for the day. Very cool experience and I'm glad we stopped by.
