I went with my partner, having read the reviews but they do not do it complete justice. Apart from the mining aspect, there is a lot of concise info on the social housing element of Carbonia and the facist history on the bi lingual panels...More

Interesting museum. A guide shows you mining machinery of the 30s and 40s of the last century at location underground. The area is big. Was not easy to find the entrance. The ticket office is a round yellow building. That might be a help.

The site is amazing, it is advisable to walk around before visiting the museum (in the summer, preferably not at the hottest hours of the day). The guide in the museum was very good, and so were the explanatory materials too. Texts are in Italian...More

My wife and I visited the museum one Sunday afternoon, it was fascinating. Not only is there an exhibition showing the history of mining in the area, but you also get to travel over 900 metres along mine shafts to see what it was like....More

This is not only a mining museum where you can visit a (reconstructed) coal mine, but also a beautiful industrial site, a wonderful building and an interesting exposition on the history of Carbonia.

The museum is fantastic and I suggest the underground visit. You can see the real life of sardinian miners in '40 and '50.

Particularly appreciated the "underground experience", even from a mine worker point of view. As it is often the case in Sardinia, driving directions up to parking & museum entrance are just NOT-EXISTING, you nearly need to be escorted through the vast converted old mining area...More
