  • 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.  more »
  • 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...  more »

  • Small old style museum. Only interesting attraction is possibility to go through old silver mine route. In some places width of route is 0.4m but height 1.2m. Bo audio guides, only paper materials. Guide mostly speaks czech, some info on english. If museum will update to the age, could be really interesting. Expo is also passive.
  • The mine tour (II) is a must see in the town of Kutna Hora. It goes deep underground and the tour guide gives an excellent overview of what it was like to work in the deep, dark shafts of a medieval mine.
