Kohtla Mining Park

Would you like to get a taste of the life of real coal miners? Then all you have to do is put on your wellies and a warm jacket and take a lamp. Because, where else but underground would you hear, taste and feel the same things as men who toiled underground every day for several decades?

Now, Enrichment Factory is also open, demonstrating the journey of oil shale on the ground, explaining how energy is created and what are the future trends in the energy sector.

NB! Ticket sale for the underground museum ends 2 hours before the museum is closed.

Getting there

From the Tallinn-St Petersburg highway (E20), drive through Kohtla-Järve to Kohtla-Nõmme and follow the signs to the Kohtla Mining Museum. Those coming from the south should turn left at the Mäetaguse intersection and travel for another 20 km or so, until they are pointed in the direction of the museum. Then just follow the signs!
