Mining Park
Mercury Museum
Google Street View
The Mercury Museum was installed recuperating the old mercury warehouse in the Buitrones enclosure. The building was constructed in 1941. It has a square floor, with an open inside patio, a ground floor and a basement. It is made up of load-bearing walls made from stone and lime mortar. The main façade shows an entryway with an entry arch, with two medallions and a pediment over a cornice.

Intervention in the building meant adapting a contaminated and deteriorated industrial space, turning it into a cultural space making public visiting possible. The most important museums in the entire Mining Park are in this building. On the ground floor, there are rooms for geology and palaeontology in the area, mercury sciences with interactive mercury physics and chemical experiments, the history of this metal's metallurgy, and the mercury weighing and packaging room. The purpose of the basement is to show the history of the mines and transportation from Almadén to Seville's dockyards, and from there, to America.
