At Gorno Mining Museum you can find original pieces, such as tools, clothes and materials used in the past. The video “The zinc valley” will bring you through the journey of the zinc from the extraction process to the final product, you’ll watch original video recorded during the mining activity. You can see and touch different types of Gorno minerals and browse through loads of different interesting objects. It is also possible to access the old mining archive, a valuable source of information, research, details and discoveries of the past and the present. “Costa Jels” mining site was open from Roman times until the 1960s. The “Serpenti” entrance leads us underground where there is a constant temperature of about 10 °C. Here is shown the hard work of the miners and one specific event – Charlie’s accident. He was stuck underground for 9 days
