Large site with many parts, including museum of daily lives of miners and their families. We arrived later, so no guided tours were available, so we just walked around the are by ourselves. It's quite large.

A fascinating insight to mining and the lives of miners in France with something for all ages, the highlight being the guided tour 'down 'the mine to see how mining changed through the ages. A good day out whatever the weather.

If you are anywhere near this museum you must go. The official visit is about one hour but there are plenty of other things to see. It has a nice cafe, shop etc.

This museum was unique. You learnt a lot about the mines, not only through displays, but by actually getting a tour inside of the mine. When you take the small lift down into the mine, wearing a helmet and listening to demonstrations of the noise...More

The museum is a great reconstruction of the lives and works of the mining people - following all the steps of the technological development. The guide (in our case Anne Claire) was amazing
