A museum about mines is such a great idea however the site seems deteriorating and maintenance is required. Some of the equipment in the tunnel aren't working anymore and left broken. The staffs are smiley but lack of professional attire. The ticket counter is run down. The tunnel is dripping and management should look into it. Maybe make use of... More

It's certainly a place not to be missed if you ever pass by this small town of Sungai Lembing. A place filled with history of this small town. Be amaze as you walk into the deepest underground Tin Mines in the world. What to expect from this place: 1) It's a mine, so be prepared to walk through quiet, dim... More

A very nice visit, where you, after a short trip on a minetrain, walk inside the mine. The informationsigns are good, but the guide was bad. Entrance for an adult is FM 30. Combine this visit with the waterfalls nearby.

Sungai lembing caves is formerly a tin mines using the shaft method. The caves is dug for mining but now it is for tourist. You can ride a short ride using the shaft train but inside the cave you have to walk in order to explore it. It is cooling inside and lighting is good. You have to read on... More

All 9 of us had a good time in this say to be, the deepest, longest and largest tin mine at one time. Young and old alike have a good time inside the old mine. The staff was very helpful in sharing the history of this mine to us. He was very patient too even though we asked many questions.... More

The tunnel itself was fun to visit. Most of the tunnels are flooded and only few is open for visiting. they definitely need more promotion and need to install more attractions to the tunnel. It is such a shame to have the "world deepest tunnel" but not being promoted enough. The fee is minimal (RM 15 for local). Be sure... More

Had low expectations of this place when I first reached there. There were no people around. And I only gave it a four star rating because the area outside the mines are poorly maintained. BUT, the train ride into the mine was interesting! It was a short ride and we are in the mine. There are many signs around giving... More

Enjoyed all the visit, well worth going too. Good information about the mines. One downside no advertising about it at all we just came across it, such a shame. One small shop there but nothing else. One thing though in malaysia if your malaysian you get reduced rate but any foreigner has to pay double.
