One of the largest technical museums in Hungary

Our exhibition preserves and presents artefactual, documentary and photographic material of the mining industry in Hungary. The permanent exhibitions deal with the minerals and rocks of great mining value, the art and crafts of mining, the millennial history of mining in Hungary, and especially the history of higher education in mining. The museum's Mine of Experience is a children's realm where everyone can become a little miner, put on a miner's helmet or a colour guard, slide down into the mine, travel through narrow and dark passages, ride in a chandelier, try out the medieval water extraction device.
