First of all: I'm only rating this attraction 4 stars not 5 (Heritage Silver Mine) because of confusing ticketing system in this place, the mine itself is absolutely top thing in this region. The tour starts overground with a little open air exhibition of steam engines that used to work in all sorts of mines. This part is free of charge and is rather small, but will appeal to young explorers. Some of the locos on display show poor state... The second part of tour takes you underground, and for this experience you have to pay, the question is: how much. The price of a single ticket depends on a number of people in the group, so no problem, if you are comming with a large number of people in your party. But if you are an individual tourist you're in trouble, as there is a charge for the guide, which is split on all participants, so the more visitors in group, the price is smaller. But because of that there always are delays at the start, as the museum staff tries to get as many people in each group going underground, as poss, so given time for the set off is always delayed, sometimes much... But it's worth waiting for. It starts with multimedia show in former mine offices, then you put your hard hat on, and off you go on the lift, deep below. At first you walk along the corridors, narrow and very low in places, than you take a boat on the way back. As a little supplement to this mine, not far off, there is a place called "Sztolnia Czarnego Pstrąga", which is another part of the same underground channel found in "Zabytkowa Kopalnia Srebra". You got to drive (or walk few kilometers) to park in Repty, then you go to the one of the shaft (information on which one is to go down, which to go up is always on the gates), go down on spiral staircase for about 40 meters, then go abroad a little boat. Really worth trying, both of the underground experiences!
