UNESCO World Heritage (2)Located at Berggericht, seat of the Mining Court from the 16th century and later used by the famous Mining Academy (Banskej akadémie), the Mineralogical Exhibition comprises a systematic mineralogy display representing over 400 types of mineral. Inside the museum is also a mining tunnel, the Michal Mining Tunnel (Štôlna Michal), which dates from the 16th century. The first 75 metres have been developed and are now part of the museum.
