Rio Tinto mine museum

We are planning to visit this museum next week.

I understand there is also a rail journey.

Does anyone have any tips on where to start and how long the visit should take

I was there in the summer but did not do the museum. It's vast and interesting area of industrial archaeology on a grand scale. The English village of Bella Vista is interesting complete with sentry post to keep the locals out and I had 'pleasure' of playing the 9-hole golf course, which is apparently Spain's oldest course (1880 something) - all it lacks is grass! There is grass on the tee boxes and greens (immaculately kept) but the rest is barren multi-coloured earth landscape. Lets just say the bounce of the ball is unpredictable.

I have to recommend my hosts Fran and Mike at http://www.visit-rural-spain.com/ at the really lovely village of Corteconcepcion which is about 30 minutes drive from the Rio Tinto mine.
