So many years of incredible history are stored in this museum. Give yourself plenty of time to peruse and explore. A great place to learn about living in the Czech Republic hundreds of years ago. more »
Small old style museum. Only interesting attraction is possibility to go through old silver mine route. In some places width of route is 0.4m but height 1.2m. Bo audio guides, only paper materials.

The mine tour (II) is a must see in the town of Kutna Hora. It goes deep underground and the tour guide gives an excellent overview of what it was like to work in the deep, dark shafts of a medieval mine.
