Loved it here! I’d visit again!! Scary climbing the stairs though as I don’t like heights but everything was worth it. Really educational and a great museum/shop on site too! Nice views when exiting the mines also! Would highly recommend

Very nice long long climb up steps to the top very interesting, informative. Automatically push button tour can go at own pace. When you reach the top and come out Stoney path to walk down.

You get your hard hat then walk off into the mines, see where and how they did their job back in the day, and climb some steps. When you exit you get some stunning views of the mountains!

We stopped here on a very wet Sunday on our way home. You don't get many opportunities to climb through a mine and the children quite liked the experience. It's a bit dim, moist and a steady 10C all year round so do bring a...More

Although there wasn’t that much to see the experience was great. Being free to look around without a guide was pretty awesome. Did expect a bit more to see though as the few highlights of the tour were smaller than expected. Yet we enjoyed our...More

Personally I found it interesting. I would have liked to see more stalagmites and stalagtites but ducking through the winding, wet tunnels banging my head (they give you hard hats) was fun. The 186 steps at the end was worth it for tge gorgeous views....More
