How do people work deep underground? Visit the replica mine, genuine down to the smallest detail, under the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Technical Museum).

You too can take a trip into the past and see how coal was mined in Austria and Moravia 100 years ago. In the oldest display mine in Europe, you can directly experience how hard the work of the miners was at that time. In addition, you can experience real machines in operation. Here, everything is still in working order: From the compressed-air hammer to the giant disk shearer, which alone can cut 1,000 tonnes of coal from the pit.
