EXHIBITION

Come and experience the rich history of mining.

16 years of unique underground adventure.

About the museum

Come and see for yourself how mysterious the underground world is!

·         In the company of our guides you will enter the coal mine exactly as the miners did last century.

·         Dressed in mining clothes, overcoat, with a helmet on your head and with a snack in your hand, you will get into the coal mine, 160 meter deep, through the Old shaft from 1888.

·         In the underground tunnels you'll see in an hour and a half a vivid demonstration of how the miners work looked like in the past and how it does today.

·         Story in the museum is created by scenes and puppets of miners who come to life with modern audio-visual equipment. You'll become acquainted with the mechanisation of the mine in recent decades of the development of Coal Mine Velenje. You will conclude your visit with a ride on the underground railway.

·         At last you will visit the museum on the surface with an exhibition on the development of coal mining in Slovenia, a coal miner's apartment before 1930, the history of the legendary “jump over the skin” and exhibitions of famous artists.

·         The interesting multimedia story is also available in English, German, Italian and Croatian languages to ensure our foreign guests a perfect experience.
