Musée de la Mine


This museum presents the story of how techniques and tools evolved in the mines from 1855 to 1979, what methods were used to extract coal, what measures were taken to avoid dust, and how gas explosions were prevented. Former miners serve as volunteer guides, taking visitors through 400 metres of galleries, on an audio-assisted tour in several languages. The visit ends with a film about life in the mines, with original images from that era.
