Owner description: C-mine is a gem of industrial heritage and brings you the stories of the mine in a contemporary, creative and imaginative way. Do you want to know how dark it really was in the old coal mine or see the miners at work? Then come to C-mine expedition, where you will pay a virtual and real-life visit to the Winterslag mine.

Nice to visit but we expected more the feeling of a mine and the history of the life of the mine and the miners. It's a bit modern and they brought lot's of extras to the expedition that don't bring added value. Thanks to the virtual reality experience in the end, the visit made us happy again. The virtual reality experience was the best of the whole expedition and showed the life of the mine and miners back in the days.

Indeed the virtual reality is very nice, but except for that their is almost nothing to see in the C-mine. Almost no pictures or information.. After one hour we were already at the exit. We would have loved an additonal museum.
Luckily you can find only 3 km further a museum made by the old mine workers at Waterschei in Thorpark. They give tours on saturday and sunday afternoon. Their are alot of atributes, old clothes, lamps, machines etc. and you can ask alot of questions. I did not like C-mine but I loved the personal tour at Waterschei, Thorpark.

C-Mine is a nice place to hang out. You get to know well the mine and there is a lot where to explore in it, also if you climb the final stairs you get a great view of the city. Though you might get dizzie if you climb it fast, because it's a long spiral staircase.
