We visited with kids 3 and 6 yrs old. Went on a 1,5 hr walking tour to the water wheel. I would have loved to spend more time in the museum as it is a really cool place. Nicely set up and modern. Friendly staff.

Interesting experience which would have been better if we had started with Museum House M. In any case the experience was worth the entrance fee.

The mine complex has been kept as it was in 1988 when the mine closed, making the experience very authentic. There are several optional tours, as well as the buildings now turned into wonderful museums which you can access when you want. The underground tours...More

Yes, the mine and the museum are in exactly the same place - well, maybe twenty feet apart!
