ABSTRACT

The case of Rosia Montana Mining Museum underlines the importance of promoting
tourism in mining on a national basis, to ensure where possible those new employment
opportunities are created in tourism in mining and that municipalities are aware of the
possibilities for tourism in mining and that these are integrated into their tourism
promotional activities. This paper emphasizes that our country’s tourism attractiveness
lay in its diversity, including tourism in mining. It is important to perceive the
opportunities for tourism related to mining and identify any possible linkages between
the country’s major economic sector and the potential to use the mining industry as part
of the expansion plans for the tourist sector. That’s the case of Rosia Montana Mining
Museum.

Keywords: tourism in mining, underground mining workings, mining underground museum.
