Definetly the best tourism place in north Estonia. You must book underground guided tour before visit (via email).
Guide previously worked as miner and now he is guiding tourists in mines. Excursion was about 1h long was very interesting.

Went there with some friends and our 9 year old. We had booked a tour in advance as you can not go to the mine without a guide. There are english and russian audioguides. Our guide was previously working himself in the mine so he had interesting stories besides only facts. Keep in mind that is lot of moisture down there so keep your warm clothes on under the clothes you get. Good idea to leave you hat and gloves as well during the winter. So cool that they showed the machines working and also the miners train you drove on.

Great idea to make museum out of not working mine. Everything is very authentic: you are dressed as a mine worker, and experience almost everything the workers have experienced (except the heavy work). Audioguide is available, but check it before going down, as one of ours couldn’t switch language from Latvian. Also, it will be noisy and cold in the mine, so I personally don’t recommend going there with kids under 3 years.

We were part of a group (you need to book in advance and with a minimum number of people) that attended the summer school at the Tallinn University (for all ages and really very interesting topics and there is also a winter school each year), and had the most awesome experience. We dressed up in mining gear for the cold and protection (hard hats) and photos. We all crammed into the underground train and then wait for the train to fetch the rest of the group. So we explored and took some awesome pictures. The guide actually worked in the mine and showed us so many awesome things! Some of the machines are still working and he started them for us. He also answered all our questions and then we had the most pleasant experience: we had our lunch underground! This was so awesome and the food so nice and the people serving it, friendly. Really highly recommended.

Went there specially for underground tour which turned out that you have to book it in advance and to go underground there have to be a group of at least 10 people. So we could not go underground and instead went to see just museum. Museum alone is nothing really much what to see or do. Basiy time and money wasted.
