This museum has loads of displays and oral information about the copper and chrome mining and production in the area, including the vast environmental damages it caused. I'm not sure small children will find interest in this museum that will last for the duration of the visit. Youth and adults interest in mining and science (metallurgy, mechanical engineering, etc.) will... More

A wonderful place to walk around. Some awesome models of the mining. But unfortunately all descriptions were only in Norwegian. They did however offer headphones. We declined since we enjoy discussing what we see

Part of the old copper mining mill. Great place from all age groups. They take you through the Smelthing process of copper mining.

Very organized and well-thought out museum! Free audio guides with price of admission. Allow two hours for a leisurely visit. Tempting gift shop and cozy, inviting cafe.

Don't miss the numerous models which clearly explain the entire copper mining to ingot process from its 16th century beginnings until its bankruptcy in in 1977. The clothing displays and audio guide were excellent.

If you don't know much about mining and and the process you can probably learn a few things from this museum. If you already are familiar with mining you can look at the miniature models but that's about it. Very few real objects from the activities around Röros. A very average museum.

After receiving an audio guide (multiple languages available) went down into the museum to learn more about the mining history in Roros. Besides the very informative audio guide, the miniature mining models were entertaining and explained very well how the mining business worked in those days. Definitely worth a visit!

Many good working models to demonstrate the process from mining to copperbars. Why not QR code the models and places in stead of only soundguide.
