“Must see when interested in mining history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

I consider this place better and more interesting than the similar Landek Park Museum (but instead of Landek, in Michal Colliery you do not go underground, the exhibits are only above).

Note that the tour start only at 9:00h, 11:00h, 13:00h, 15:00h and 17:00h.

Very recommended.

“Great unusual place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

It is a great place! An old mining site in an unusual environment will take you back to the industrial times of Jules Verne. A great, funny guide with a huge knowledge (he was a miner himself, I suppose) of anything related. It is well worth a visit.
