The mineral and mining museum, which was opened in 2006 in Agios Konstantinos (Kamariza), incorporates the Serpieri shaft as the outdoor part of the museum.

This mine and the Hilarion mine are co-type localities for natroglaucocerinite.

Coordinates given are those of the Serpieri shaft.

Note that most of the Serpieri mine workings are inaccessible nowadays.
