Since October 2010 on the Nature reserve of the Piusa caves, near the Museum Cave, the Piusa Caves Visitor Centre has been open. The purpose of the visitor centre is to contribute to the protection of the Piusa caves and protected species by the year-round coordination and planned developing of tourism, also to provide the safety of the tourists visiting Piusa caves.

Piusa Visitor Centre houses a museum, a seminar room for 50 people, a cafe and handicraft room for children. We provide guiding services, educational excursions for schools, workshops and seminars. Next to the visitor centre you can find a quite unconventional children playground.


Piusa Visitor Centre is home to a museum, cafe and handicrafts workshop. Using a 3D computer model you can take an exciting virtual stroll through Piusa's sandstone caves, watch short films about mining and bats in the sandy-floored cinema, and marvel at the AHHAA exhibitions. You can even go on a guided tour of the actual caves. The former mining tunnels have become the winter home to local bats. The quartz sand found in the caves was first mined in 1922. The forests on the Piusa caves nature reserve boast a 1.4 km long study trail.
