The museum is the result of the transformation of an ancient quarry in which three tunnels had been created for use as a shelter during the Second World War. In 1980, the tunnels were set up by miners to realistically recreate the internal environment of a mine. The museum runs for about 700 metres in length, through secondary and main tunnels, where you can see different types of structures used to support mine roofs and documentation describing different mineral extraction techniques. Also on display are numerous examples of work tools, machinery and trolleys still in use until just a few years ago. The museum visit is accessible only with the accompaniment of a guide, included in the price of admission. From the museum you can also access Colline Metallifere Mationale Park, and you can book guided tours and excursions to places of interest related to mining in the area.
