Went for a quick visit with my 3 year old son and his cousin. I booked the English version of the tour and the guide was great. Lots of fascinating history in this silver mine.

Visited this old silver/lead mine together with a friend. We found on the website that tours with English guide were possible. On arrival we were told that there was no English speaking guide available that day. There was the possibility to visit the museum and the underground together with a Polish group. We were given an English translation of the... More

very nice place, the mine itself very impressive and outside the mine collection of old locomotives and steam machines, very nice especially for children and fathers ;) not far away is the system of underground water channels to pump the water away from the mines, also worth seeing!

We especially liked boat trip in underground canal. Do not forget to take worm clothes as it is pretty cold

Very nice trip in the historical place.There are only few minings you can visit in Poland, and I am not sure if any other is silver one. This is not only walking but also boat riding and guided tour.

We took 1.5h trip of the old silver mine. This is a combine experience, you are starting with 30 minutes guided multimedia tour, it is beautifully done, with hybrid, both human guide and iPad run over the wall projection. We loved this part, took a lot of photos. Afterwards we were fitted with hard hats , hoped into old fashioned... More

You can feel like a miner instead of just watch how it would be like. Don't forget to take warm clothes if you're visiting in summer.

This place is simply great. If you don't have time for Wieliczka or don't want to spend too much on the ticket go to this silver mine instead. The water underground passage is my favourite part.

They have kept the place authentic as it comes, and there is a reasonable amount of walking. Probably the best thing to do in this area. If you get a good tour guide this helps the journey immensely. For the polish it will be fine as the native tongue can convey a message well. For the english crowd our tour... More

Wow! I've just came from the Mine, almost 2 weeks after visiting the Guido mine in Zabrze and it's hard to choose the more interesting one! All the corridors in the Silver mine were absolutely amazing, so narrow and low, showing the effort that every miner had to put looking for the silver. We also went for a short boat-trip... More
