Bochnia Salt Mine

A unique exhibition illustrating the development of the mine across centuries together with the history of miners’ work and salt excavation techniques is open!

Numerous historical stagings, presented in holograms, interactive projections or astonishingly clear recordings to name just a few, is located along 1.5 km route, 180 m under the earth’s surface. Beside historical performances, the exhibition consists of multimedia shows picturing the harsh reality of mining work such as marsh gas explosion or underground flood.

What's more, the visitors are able to travel in time through a tunnel time-machine or play computer games to check their knowledge in a quiz, check themselves in the role of a salt-works manager, or even sleep inside the mine at the depth of 250 metres below the ground.
