"Falu coppermine museum" Falun Mine - Mining Museum Tip by MikaelPersson

Falun Mine - Mining Museum, Falun: 2 reviews and 4 photos

 
 

This is a fascinating museum!
The coppermine was used until 10 years ago and had been that for several hundred years and is now a World Heritage Museum well worth a visit.
You can go 60 meters down on a guided tour and there's a museum about the mine on ground level.
There's also a café and a shop where there's alot of handicrafts to buy.
If you have the interest count on a half day for this experience.
