Well worth a visit. The staff are really friendly. The tour of the mine is interesting and well worth the €11 we each paid. If you have difficulty climbing stairs the tour of the mine might not be your cup of tea. Overall a really enjoyable and interesting place to visit. The dog and her puppies were so cute I had to include a picture.
Privately owned, funded from patrons. Preserved 1800 mine: mined for lead until the need for lead lessened and then abandoned. Able to go 130 feet down with tour guide. Owner still working on getting steps further down. Looking forward to coming back years from now to see more. Preserved wooden ladders and tools from the miners work. Must wear head net and helmet which is provided. Playground and hot tea available. Nice time out for my family.
