This is the mining museum combining the oldest woring steam power mining machine (you may see it in motion) and underground trip with guide including explanation of mining history and techniques in region, riding the underground train and seeing the machinery in action (you may even steer some of the pieces!!!!). It is really experience not to be missed!
