Real and working devices

All types of wooden technical devices are based on medieval engravings by Georgius Agricola. Each machine works and is presented in such a way as to engage the viewer to play - all you need is the strength of your own muscles to make it work, for example:

  • a powerful 3-ton milling treadwheel
  • 15-meter treadmill,
  • smelter plant and crushers

Physics classes

There is no better way to learn about physics than checking how it works yourself. Thanks to the various experiences in Mining Village, you can learn the simple laws of physics used to activate and operate various devices.

Let yourself be caught up in fun combined with science and experiment with the laws of physics in an active and creative way.

The Path of Fear

The labyrinth is a must-see for lovers of unforgettable experiences. A dose of mystery and laughter is something worth having fun in the Haunted House.

Complete the task and go through the labyrinth finding your way back to the Middle Ages through a swirly tunnel with sound and light effects giving you an amazing perceptual illusion.

What tools will you discover
in our Mining Village?

Manual crane

You will find out how heavy objects can be pulled out only thanks to human strength. A wooden crane consisting of a rope and 2 blocks - thanks to this power transmission, it allows you to lift weights 50 times greater than with a normal roller.

Treadmill wheel

A wooden structure that transforms the energies of human strength into mechanical energy. The treadmill wheel was used to remove excess water from the mine and it was very efficient because only one man could make it move.

Torture instruments

Perfectly reproduced torture chamber and executioner's room. People were tortured in it, experiencing enormous pain, they body used to be hurt and they were mentally oppressed. You will see what instruments prompted people to testify and plead guilty.
