I went there last Sunday just to learn that the museum has been vandalised and that the mine is closed to visitors.

Real original mine
set de 2019
Don't expect a glitzy tourist attraction, this is one of the original South African gold mines. Its all a bit run down but the owner passionately conducts the visits himself and has a huge number of stories to tell and artifacts to show. This is really worth a visit to appreciate a bit what it must have been like to be a pioneer gold miner. This site is constantly under threat from illegal miners and had only recently reopened following an attack earlier this year. Well worth a visit, support the largely unsupported owner to continue to offer this unique experience.

A really cool place about the traditional Goldmining
jan de 2018
A fantastic guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of the origins and development of the mine. Often accompanied by his friendly dog Jango. Ideal for small family groups or friends. A real gem, that should be part of everyone's day out in and around the Cradle of Mankind. Excellent.

Hi Nick Apologies for the delay we are only now getting up to speed with Trip advisor! We are usually down the mine back in the world of 1881! Just wanted to thank you for the kind words, very glad you enjoyed it. Cheers Laurence

History tour off the mainstream

Interesting tour into one of the oldest mines of Joburg. The owner/guide is so passionate about what he is doing. Very lovely. His office is literally a museum and there also is a small art gallery. Had a great time!

Miniera privata
jun de 2018 • Casais
Un museo ed una miniera privata gestiti da un tipo alquanto strano, che non cura affatto il posto abbandonato a sè stesso. Credo che ormai nessuno visiti questo posto da diverso tempo, infatti il tizio si meravigliava della nostra richiesta di visitare la miniera. Alla fine dietro pagamento di un salatissimo biglietto (10 euro a persona, più caro di altri musei a Johannesburg) , ci ha dato qualche spiegazione sulla storia della miniera, sui vari tipi di minerali presenti al suo interno e ci ha fatto entrare. La miniera è decadente e buia, molto trascurata. Ci ha dato almeno una torcia per entrare nella miniera. Consigliamo vivamente di evitarne la visita, non vale neanche la metà dei soldi spesi!!

Cute, welcoming and very authentic
ago de 2017 • Família
The owner was very welcoming, open for conversation and eager to show us around in the former mine. Since it's small and doesn't go in deep, it's a very accessible way to get to understand the mining activity that went on there and how basic mining was in those days.

Thanks for the positive review, so glad you had a good time. The mine is actually quite deep, there is more than a kilometre of tunnels across three levels but you are totally correct it is easily accessible as you walk straight into the hill. Hope my old man didn't talk your ear off! Thanks again Laurence

Lovely owner, interesting place
mai de 2018 • A sós
This interesting place is off the beaten path in Kromdraai. As soon as you drive up, you're greeted by a friendly pack of Ridgebacks, the friendliest of them all being Jango. The attraction is run by a very pleasant and friendly man named Gavin, along with his wife. Gavin is a talented sculptor and painter and a lovely gallery of his work sits on the property. The museum is more than the history of gold mining. It includes the lifestyle that went along with the gold miners. Filled with fascinating objects big and small.

I know this is very late we are off the beaten track online too! Just wanted to thank you for this review, its so nice to hear you enjoyed it and appreciated my fathers art works, he actually studied sculpture and had exhibitions in London before he discovered the mine and became obsessed! Thanks again Laurence

Być tam ... można zrozumieć...
abr de 2017 • Amigos
Chociaż nie jest to typowy, klasyczny - pełen eksploatacji człowieczej wytrzymałości, przykład kopalni złota, to pobyt w tym miejscu powinien wielu uzmysłowić co faktycznie kryje się pod stwierdzeniem, że złoto krwią ocieka... Warunki pracy w jakim przyszło przebywać tam przez długie okresy życia zniewolonym wydobywcom wprawiają w ... sam nie wiem jak określić. Wystarczy powiedzieć iż są miejsca - korytarze, gdzie nie można wchodzić ze względu na wysokość, szerokość, niemożliwość przemieszczania się ludzi/zwiedzających. Turysta, gdy zwiedza nie robi tego "po prostu", rytm zwiedzania a niewolnicza praca to dwie skrajne prędkości. Nagle urywające się korytarze, obecnie są zabezpieczone. W okresie eksploatacji złóż złota, diamentów, nie było na to czasu ... i środków finansowych ..

Surprising!

Quite easy to find the place, lot of parking, safe, interesting and informative. They are open on weekends and every hour on the hour there is a tour. It is dark inside the mine, but you get a light and there is no stairs or small gullies. You really go back in time here.

Wonderful, quirky bit of SA history
jul de 2017 • Família
We drove to Kromdraai after visiting the nearby Sterkfontein caves (brilliant by the way - well worth a visit). Surprisingly the mine museum doesn't have a brown tourist sign marking it off the road, so at first we weren't sure we'd found the right place - you almost feel you're turning into someone's driveway. Which in a way, you are, as it's the home (and small art studio) of the owner, Gavin (a wiry little chap in his mid-60s with an infectious smile). He quickly made us welcome and in a matter of minutes we were taken on a tour (we were seemingly the only visitors that afternoon). The place is smaller than we expected and slightly dusty and musty - it almost feels as if you're stepping back in time. We didn't go very far into the mine - perhaps 250m - but it was enough to see the inner workings and to get a proper feel for how the place must have been back in the 1880's. Asides from the information on mining and geology Gavin is hugely knowledgeable about the local wildlife - a surprising amount of which lives deep inside the mineshafts. Accompanying us on the tour was Django, Gavin's ridgeback - the biggest of the breed I have ever seen, a truly lovely animal. The kids loved every minute of it, and Gavin's enthusiasm is infectious. 100% worth a visit.
