The underground museum is the most attractive and exciting sight at the Kohtla Mining Park, consisting of former mining gears with a total length of 1 kilometre. During the guided tour, visitors become miners as they put on helmets and miner lights and descend to mining gears up to 8 m under the ground. They are offered a unique chance to walk in the footsteps of real miners, experience their daily work in moist and dusky conditions, which helps to understand the background and the development of oil shale mining and the functioning of the industry. During the underground tour, guests visit miners’ various underground work places as well as the explosives storage, travel on a real underground train for miners, and get the view of various underground technical equipment and mining technology. In addition to that, visitors can order a delicious miner’s lunch and enjoy it in the underground miner canteen.
