This includes the history of the caves: mining of limestone blocks, pre-historic habitation, and discovery of fossil ammonites, as well as a display of the history of mushroom growing.

Very interesting, good visual displays and the usual written information boards dotted throughout the caves. They also have an information booklet in English available at the entrance. Small cafe offering lite snacks Well worth a visit.
