Be aware this is not wheelchair friendly as some of the inclines underground can be a bit steep but I guess you'd figure that with it being a mine. Was really fun and the kids loved it. Great idea to stop at the halfway tram on the way down.
  • Loved this mine and the story behind it, well marked route through exhibits and mine itself. We had our 14 yr old son with us who thought it was totally awesome 😎. You have to wear a hard hat for the mine which is just as well ..... I bumped my head a few times. Some of the corridors are a bit narrow but otherwise fine.
