The Kohtla Mining Park, or the Mine Museum, is located in the North-Eastern district of Estonia - Ida-Virumaa (18 km from Jõhvi, 65 km from Narva and 150 km from Tallinn). The museum is located in a closed mine and is divided into four parts:
- the underground mine museum,
- the White House Visitor Center,
- the sorting complex with a slab tower and a concentrator,
- a paved outdoors area with machinery and structures.

 

Visitors can go on organized tours of the underground Mine Museum wearing miners' helmets and jackets. Guests of the museum can see the real dark wet tunnels up to 1 km long, ride a miner's train and see the warehouse.

 

In summer, it is possible to swim in the pond located on the territory of the museum, play beach volleyball, go rollerblading along an asphalt path, or go on jeep safari through abandoned shale quarries. A hiking trail is accessible from the museum, it can be traversed on foot or by bicycle. In 3,5 km away from the museum there is a picnic zone with a hut and a place for a camp fire.

 

In winter, museum guests can go snowtubing down a 250-meter-tall hill. The museum complex hosts festive programs, sporting and other events. The museum's conference room (for up to 50 people) can be rented.

 

 

The museum is closed from December 24 to January 5.
