Description

The biggest industrial attraction in Poland is the Old Mine Science and Art Center in Wałbrzych.

The center is located on the site of the former JULIA Coal Mine. In 2014, the revitalization of the largest Wałbrzych mine was completed. Currently, on 4.5 hectares there are historic post-industrial objects, which are enriched with authentic equipment.

Each visitor, thanks to the miners' guides working at the center, former employees of KWK JULIA, may not only view the huge scale of the mine's infrastructure, but also have the opportunity to learn the specifics of the dangerous and demanding work of the miner. Visitors to the Old Mine in its structures will find:

- Museum of Industry and Technology - visitors will learn about the history of coal, mining and miners who worked in extremely dangerous conditions. There are mining machines and their components, a collection of archives, memorabilia related to the activities of the Wałbrzych mines, as well as audiovisual materials.

 

- Contemporary Art Gallery - a place where outstanding artists present their works during permanent and temporary exhibitions.

- Unique Ceramics Center - offers ceramic and pottery workshops, during which the participants deal with a selected modeling technique in clay.

- Guest Rooms and Café - The Old Mine also has 1- and 2-bed rooms with its own bathroom with shower and hairdryer. The rooms also have a TV and a telephone. The cafe is located in the place of the former Sztygarówki.
