    Good place to go to learn about mining activities and understand the difficult times miners went through. Great for kids. Tunnel ride is short but an interesting experience.

    Very nice interesting historic place for you to indulge your curiosities of one of the deepest and longest underground mine in the world. Ticket price is around RM 16 for Malaysian adult. Place looked a bit empty maybe due to current pandemic situation (Covid-19). But overall the place is a must visit if you went to Sungai Lembing.

    Malaysia was built on tin mines and rubber. This place could have been better restored to be a top class tourists attraction and also for education purpose.
    It's part of our heritage, Right now only minimal effort to keep this place going. This place deserve better attention
