The mine is partially still functioning. The area under the town is really large and deep. Some spaces are unbelievable huge. Interesting and unusual - and if the day is too warm, it is always quite cool down there (take enough clothes...)

Because the Tytyri mine is a limestone-mine, there are no poisonous gases or anything else that could be dangerous. The air is always about 10°C and it is clean. In fact, the mine is so clean that the city takes most of its drinking water from the mine! The water is filtered in a sand-filter and then pumped into the... More

Everybody who lives in Lohja or comes here on their travels should experience Tytyri Mine Museum. You get to see a real working mine and see some wonderful old machines. And you'll gonna get a treat in the end in a BIG cavern, howerever I won't spoil the ending. You're getting a lift by car to the museum mine, at... More

We landed in front of the entrance of the mine museum, knocked the door with an echo. Exicting to be down and walk and see what there down. Limestone was heard to have several... More

The mine museum is actually a partial obsolete shaft from a still-running mining site. Check out the schedule as this is only guided tours. After registration, you'll get a safety helmet and will have to wait for a van to bring you down to the entrance. The van is riding down in the mine, you will be suddenly in a... More
