This entire town built on a mine, if coins and ancient currency is your thing this is amazing, it also houses a bible and a choir book from the 1500's, the building itself is an artwork

If you want to find more about the life of the miners and you are not claustrophobic I highly recommend the tour of the silver mine. You don't need strong physical condition if you don't give up in the middle of the tour! I appreciated...More

Arrived 15 minutes before the museum was due to close, young man was rude and unhelpful, just wanted to lock up and go home. Started arguing with our guide, not impressed.

I have reservations to go on a 3 PM English-speaking tour into the mine this spring. I may be able to take a 2PM English tour of the museum before the mine tour. Do you recommend a museum tour also? Or does the mine tour give you enough basic information? Thank you for your reply!
