Rio Marina Mining Museum

Smell of iron, mineral flavour, a blood-red and ochre-yellow wound that stretches and sinks into a turquoise sea and, slowly, heals where nature is stronger than the human activity that has consumed it over three millennia

Need to know

The museum is located in the 18th-century Palazzo del Burò, the historic headquarters of the mining management, which now also houses the offices of the Mining Park. The main room presents a valuable collection of Elban minerals, while in the other rooms, various environments of the mine, active until the 1980s, have been reconstructed. Original tools and realistic settings allow for an immersive feeling in the old mine.
