  • We went here on a whim when we were in Sopeon. It exceeded my expectations. I learned that around 1200--1500 Hungary, especially Transylvania, was the gold supplier to the world. Perhaps that is why Romania wants to keep even the part which would like to be in Hungary. Minerals--it'a all about $$$.

  • Nice museum in nice building. Could be a bit bigger though.

  • Csak ajánlani tudom, főleg gyerekes családoknak, mert interaktìv, szinte mindent kipróbálhatnak, van egy "bánya" az alagsorban, csúszdával, csillèvel. Az ára pedig baráti.

  • Fantasztikus Gyönyörű ásványok. Bányászati ereklyék. Festmények. Szép tárlat.

  • Szép, igényes kiállítás, felnőttek és gyerekek részére egyaránt érdekes.
