An underground museum has been opened in the former Kohtla mines.

Join an excursion with a guide to see how oil shale is mined and the machinery and technology that is used to do so.

Take a ride on an underground train and try your hand at drilling, using a real drill! The above-ground exhibits and underground visit take around one hour and a half to see and complete.

The museum provides every visitor with a special jacket, helmet and miner’s lamp.
