ABOUT MUSEUM
The Mayrau Mining Museum in Vinařice is a branch of the Sládeček Museum of Local History and is located in the area of the preserved coal mine. The Kladensko-rakovnicka coal basin has been mined for more than 200 years and the museum is the only one which is uniquely preserved and publicly accessible in the region
The Prague Iron Company began digging the pit “Mayrau“ in 1874, and was dug to the final 527 meters in 1877. Ten years later, and fifty meters away, pit “Robert” was dug. In 1905, a steam mining machine made by Ringhoffer company was installed at the pit “Mayrau”. This machine is still shown to the visitors in motion. Mining ceased at the mine in 1997 and the following year both pits were buried. In 120 years of mining activity, 34 million tons of coal have been mined here.
The museum was established on the mine site in 1994 and is accessible with guides. Most of the guides are former mining workers. The tour takes place in the model of the last working day.  The demonstration of coal mining techniques is shown at artificial mining workstation, created in Homole stole. The museum also hosts exhibitions, educational, cultural and social events.
