“tour underground worthwhile”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

If you have been in pretty large caves in France and Belgium, you probably think this is not worth visiting. But it's the story about the miners who worked there that makes it worthwhile. And 'experiencing' their working conditions.

“Surprised”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

When I was told by our Swedish host's that we were going to an old copper mine I was not quite sure what to expect. However, my early worries were soon blown away by the place. Apart from the gift shop, it is as if the place has been in a time warp. I soon had the camera out and was clicking away as it was a very fascinating place and well worth a visit.

“interstesting copper mine”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

The guided tour of this mine could not be bettered, my only gripe would be that its quite pricey 210 sek for an all in ticket and I think the mine tour far exceeded the museum / and "train trip" in terms of enjoyment . howvere it did fill the whole day and its difficult to find too many attractions that can offer that for around £20

“Really interesting history”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Did you know that at one time, this mine was the largest work site in the World? Me neither, until I visited. If you have the chance to visit, then you definitely should. Even without entering the mine itself (we couldn't because we had a baby with us and you aren't allowed to carry a baby down the stairs into the mine) we still had a great time just wandering around the rim of the mine and reading about the history.

“Go see it!”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Tours in well spoken english are vey frequent during the day, check witch their reception. If you need to wait for your tour, the area outside and the museum (mainly in Swedish) are interesting.
Tour down into the mine is very interesting. Takes about 1hour but well worth it. Claustrophobia does not come into action as you are taken into larger areas. Need to climb some steps but nothing problematic.
Tourguide was very well informed with occasional well rehearsed joke, funny nonetheless.
