The indoor facilities at the Kids’ Mine cover 600 square metres, so kids can play comfortably if it is raining or too hot outside. The indoor facilities offer lots of exciting activities for younger visitors.
Kids can learn all about the exciting world of mining through hands-on activities. For example, they can practice transporting sand all the way to the top of the building using a series of conveyor belts. They can also drive the electric miniature diggers and put their precision driving skills to the test. There are even real mining wagons that they can use to remove ore from the mine – or simply hop in for a ride along the miniature railway.
More excitement can be had in the labyrinth and mining tunnel, where you get a real feel for working underground. You can then look for objects hidden throughout the area using clues related to the world of mining. Look out also for the Outokumpu “Strange Hillock”, which emits weird noises. Crawl inside and see your clothes shine in the neon lights!
Kids can also enjoy the story of the strange creatures that live inside the mountain according to ancient legends that are illustrated in giant posters.
