Lonely Planet review
Two blocks south and half a block east of the zócalo, Pachuca’s mining museum provides a good overview of the industry that shaped the region. Headlamps, miners’ shrines and old mining maps are on display, and photos depict conditions in the shafts from the early years to the present. There’s a M$20 charge to use a camera and a M$50 charge for the use of a video camera. The museum also coordinates a ‘ruta de turismo cultural minero’ (mining culture tourism route) in English, Spanish or French which visits several mining sites in the region.
