Description

Join us for an hour’s walk through 300 years of mining history. The guided tour takes you through the Nyberget mine dating from the 17th century and the Olav’s Mine from the 20th century, descending 50 metres below ground and 500 m into the mountain before reaching the massive Miner’s Hall. Sound effects and lighting add to the authentic feel. Remember to wear warm clothes and solid footwear!

The museum houses exhibitions about the mining community and the geology of the region.
