The mining museum in Rožňava has opened an Exposition of the Mining and Metallurgy of Gemer in the compound of its adventure centre.

Visitors to the museum may look forward to several dioramas with interactive features such as an accessible lift cabin.

The creators of the exhibition have shown the richness and variability of the mineral materials in area of the Gemer region via geological and archaeological collections. Their aim is to map and present not only mining and mineral processing methods but also the development of production and the culture and everyday life of the miners who are an inseparable part of the exhibition’s main motif.
