Interesting museum. A guide shows you mining machinery of the 30s and 40s of the last century at location underground. The area is big. Was not easy to find the entrance. The ticket office is a round yellow building. That might be a help.

This is not only a mining museum where you can visit a (reconstructed) coal mine, but also a beautiful industrial site, a wonderful building and an interesting exposition on the history of Carbonia.

The museum is fantastic and I suggest the underground visit. You can see the real life of sardinian miners in '40 and '50.

Particularly appreciated the "underground experience", even from a mine worker point of view. As it is often the case in Sardinia, driving directions up to parking & museum entrance are just NOT-EXISTING, you nearly need to be escorted through the vast converted old mining area...More

A very interesting and informative few hours can be enjoyed at the Carbonia Museum of Mining. The information takes you from the mid 1930's where manual mining (picks and shovels) was used through to modern day practices, as used throughout the world. Throw in important...More

I visited Carbonia in mid-February. My reason for visiting was to go to the mining museum at the “Great Mine of Serbariu” which included a trip underground! It was not easy to find the entrance, but eventually I arrived at the mine, which was like...More
