Røros Museum - Olav Mine


The mines that formed the basis for the community of Røros are no longer in operation today. But at the Olav Mine, which is situated outside of the town, you can experience the 300-year history of local mining. Visitors walk 500 metres into the mine from the Mining Museum and down to the Mining Hall, which is 50 metres underground. Only participants in a guided tour are permitted to enter the underground part of the mine.
