If u are fan of mining and history, you should visit this museum, it is great experience (if u are not afraid of small narrow spaces). U will get a coat not to be dirty, helmet with a light and you will enter the mine. Corridors are really narrow and low, so it is not good for too fat people, to be sincere. You will learn about the history of silver mining in Kutná Hora.

We enjoyed learning about the history of silver mining in Kutna Hora and the difficult job that miners had. The tour was informative and an excellent example of the claustrophobic conditions that the miners had to endure. I am definitely glad that they outfitted us with helmets since I whacked my head several times during the tour.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the tour. Yes, the helmets are essential with the ceiling height being as low as 120 cm!

So many years of incredible history are stored in this museum. Give yourself plenty of time to peruse and explore. A great place to learn about living in the Czech Republic hundreds of years ago.

Never been in a mine. Amazing experience. But not for ones who get claustrophobic! You also need to be a little up for the 500 stairs (250 down and up). Really nice people and guide. Nicely done. It’s really for everyone!

I took the underground mine guided tour. The tour was conducted in English and despite the guides apologies about her English, I understood her just fine. The guide went in to a lot of detail about the history of mining in Kutna Hora, the equipment used and the lives of the miners.

Then followed a tour down into what used to be one of the actual silver mines of Kutna Hora, back in it's heydays of mining. The safety precautions requires that we all wore hardhats with a light attached, plus overalls to protect our clothes. Personally I had a lot of fun going into the mines. The guide stops at points of interest and seeing the condition under which miners worked was very enlightening. At one point in the tour, everyone switched off their lights. In the pitch black, it made me really appreciate my office based jobs.

A really enjoyable tour.

My partner and I did both tours and we absolutely loved the silver mine tour.
There is only 1 tour a day in English which is at 3.30 but you can go on the Czech speaking tour with an information booklet which is very easy to follow, you obviously do not get the same amount of information but it is adequate. The mine is low in some places and narrow in others, so not for anyone with mobility issues or who are claustrophobic. I really enjoyed being down the mine, it’s not something you can experience every day.
The museum is also very interesting and you get a detailed guidebook in English giving information on the exhibits.

We came and were told we couldn't go upstairs as one needed a guide and the tour has already started. We would have to wait another hour. We were offered to go downstairs to "Lapidarium" which was only slightly interesting plus see some very tiny glass exhibition on the ground floor. The tour might have been good but I presume we will never know.

The tour itself was not bad, although at times due to the large size of the group, you cannot hear the guide. After the tour we took literally one minute to take a photo in the courtyard, during which time, one of the lady staff curtly told us "The tour is over. Please leave now". That was not a nice ending.

Hello, I am very sorry about your experience. I don't think the guide (lady) would want to be rude, maybe she just didn't say it politely. I apologize in the name of our museum and I hope that you stay open to us.

My partner and I took a self guided tour of the museum here but didn’t venture to the silver mine. The museum is small but features a historical review of the area and had a exhibition of ancient coins.
