Welcome to Knalla Mine and Zinkgruvan Mining Museum

If you are looking for a family adventure this summer you have come to the right place.

On the surface

We offer guided tours of our mining museum. The tour showcases interesting facts about mining as well as photographs and exhibitions.


We also offer a mini train ride which is a favourite with children.



200 meters underground

During the summer of 2016 underground tours were available for the very first time. Catch the mine lift and travel with a guide 200 meters below surface and 150 years backwards in time.

There you will be taken on a  thrilling and educational tour through the mine. Tours are in Swedish, but your guides will try to the best of their abillities to provide information in English.
