Model of coal mine

Full-sized model of coal mine in the pavilion №13 at VDNG (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy), built half a century ago, clearly shows the arrangement of mines of that time. In Soviet times there could be found a variety of exposures, to see the mine face, underground excavation, mining equipment, and ride the mine cage (not functioning today).

In the back of the hall there is a large room with no windows and with the tower – the shaft of the cage. The mine can be accessed by ramp (previously – cage). Tower highlighted lamps analogues are used in these mines.
