The vast industrial area of Landek is protected natural heritage and combines beautiful nature with an exhibition mapping out the progress of humankind from Stone Age through the Industrial Revolution all the way to the present times and the mining technology typical for the 20th century. The wide array of things to see is what makes Landek Park the unique museum that it is.
The mine rescue exhibition at Landek is one of the largest collections in the world, with one of the oldest existing breathing equipment from 1884 or SIebe-Gorman diving equipment from 1920. Apart from the historical pieces, the collection also includes contemporary breathing and rescue equipment. Kids can also try out our special rescue training area.
The underground exhibition resides in the Mine Anselm with a fourty-meter tall headframe and total of 250 meters of underground pathways, nine meters below the surface. The guided tours outline the coal mining history throughout the years 1782-1990 and include a demo of how some of the mining equipment worked. The exhibition includes life-sized miners’ figurines which realistically capture the mine working conditions. We also have a new kids’ exhibition about the mining horse Ferdinand.
