In Kohtla Mining Park-Museum there is a unique possibility to visit underground mining galleries and get a survey of the profession of an oil-shale miner. The museum displays over ten working mining machines. Among other things you can enjoy a ride in an underground train, try boring with a miner’s bore and have a hearty miner’s lunch in an underground miner canteen. On the ground there is an oil-shale sorting complex and an exposition of the means of transport used in oil-shale production.
