The Krakow Saltworks Museum, together with the Wieliczka Salt Mine and the Bochnia Salt Mine, is organizing an International Conference of Mining Museums and Underground Museums Wieliczka-Bochnia 2018, which will be held at all of the above institutions.
The conference continues the tradition of regular meetings of Polish museum staff organized by the museum in Wieliczka, but targets the broader international community of underground mining museums and mines that boast underground tourist trails, their associations, as well as various institutions, universities, and organizations connected to the history of mining around the world. The aim of the conference is to familiarize its participants with the Kraków Saltworks and to showcase the history and achievements of similar salt mines, coal mines, metal ore mines and other mines from all over the globe.
