Eur 8 per person for admittance including guided tour through part of the old coal mine. Tours in English, French and Italian. Very informative museum and excellent tour. Small museum shop and also a bar.

We visited a hot day in July. Not easy to find. Look fot the round yellow building. Great information and the tour was good. Took a little more than 1 hour. Amazing how tough work they were doing at that time!

I went with my partner, having read the reviews but they do not do it complete justice. Apart from the mining aspect, there is a lot of concise info on the social housing element of Carbonia and the facist history on the bi lingual panels...More

Interesting museum. A guide shows you mining machinery of the 30s and 40s of the last century at location underground. The area is big. Was not easy to find the entrance. The ticket office is a round yellow building. That might be a help.

My wife and I visited the museum one Sunday afternoon, it was fascinating. Not only is there an exhibition showing the history of mining in the area, but you also get to travel over 900 metres along mine shafts to see what it was like....More

This is not only a mining museum where you can visit a (reconstructed) coal mine, but also a beautiful industrial site, a wonderful building and an interesting exposition on the history of Carbonia.

The museum is fantastic and I suggest the underground visit. You can see the real life of sardinian miners in '40 and '50.
