  • It was a good and fun experience to go on. The tour guides were very helpful and kind. The stalagmites and stalactites were beautiful. It was fun seeing the mine in the dark.

  • We came from Prague but there is not much to see in the museum. For the "exhibit", I would give one star but since the museum had description materials in English and French (with grammatical mistakes), I am awarding two stars. All in all, it is not worth of making the trip.
  • Such a unique place! Unfortunately, we have been touring with unfriendly staff. Never again! As a professional teacher who is in charge of teens, we have been treated with no respect. We are all human beings, and so are teens, too. We don't deserve unpleasant treatment. Very disappointed after all. Anyway, we have plenty of beautiful places in Czechia, so let's discover them. Hopefully, we will meet the friendly and welcoming staff.
