"Beautiful Place "

A wonderful industrial museum with a few pieces of larger equipment outside. The large hall has exhibits and restored equipment covering mining from the middle ages through the 20th century. Not to be missed is the guided underground tour with stops showing the working lives of mine workers. Included is a ride on a mine train.
