This mining museum is based at the "Julia" Coal Mine in Walbrzych. There is a complex of buildings which date from the 19th century as well as the two haulage shafts named "Julia" and "Sobatka" respectively and with their 25 m high, bricked up head gear they are an amazing sight. Other facilities include a coal treatment plant, an exhibition of rescue equipment and a display of mining equipment.
