Copper-Mine Museum of Predoi - Prettau: outdoor area only
Due to the current state of emergency and to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the museum will remain closed until further notice. At the moment there are organised guided tours at the outside.
The extensive Predoi/Prettau exhibilitation mine tells the story of copper mining. Equipped with helmet and waterproof jacket, visitors travel with the pit railway to see the galleries of the mine.
A guidet tour relates to visitors the hard work performed by the former miners throughout a period of 500 years, depicted through working scenes and extraction techniques. Excavation by means of hammer and chisel is explained, as is the use of black powder and the extraction of the ore with compressed air.
No day off in August!
