Silver, iron, and uranium were once mined at the Príbram Mine in the Czech Republic. Today the mine is divided up into different sections as the Príbram Mining Museum (Hornické muzeum Příbram). Expositions, mining structures, machinery, mining railways and other attractions show visitors what those mining days were like. Exhibits also explain mining technology since the 1950s, the mining history of the area, and what life was like for the miners who once worked here.
Visitors can ride on mine trains, both on the surface and underground. Tours include several miles of underground mining tunnels, and visitors can also travel down into the pit in a mining elevator. There's also a slide that leads to a giant water wheel. You can also see historic mining steam engines and collections of minerals, or peer down Prokop mine shafts that are 5,250 feet deep. Other mine shafts here, called the old Anna shafts, are several hundred years old. Warm clothes and sturdy shoes are recommended for visits to the underground sections.
The Pribram Mining Museum is located at nam. Hynka Klicky 293 261 01 Pribram VI - Brezove Hory, about 42 miles south of Prague. Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday and public holidays 9am to 5pm from April to October, and Tuesday–Friday 9am to 4pm from November to March. General admission is 40 CZK, and some sections require an extra fee.
