16th century pit founded.
1813 Sevcin Shaft built.
1948 mining for Uranium started.


The museum occupies five separate buildings, and includes a miner's cottage, a mineral display, and nativity folk scenes which do not appear to have any connection with mining whatsoever. But the highlight is the splendid ornate pit head building housing the Sevcinsky důl or Severin's Shaft dating from 1813. You can also borrow a helmet to visit one of the mines guided by a retired miner. After this you will need to pay a visit to the Na vrsich or Miners' Pub whose beer is very highly recommended.
