The visit is a journey through the mining universe, including history of the exploitations, working conditions inside the mines, evolution of the lamps and tools thanks to the mechanization, geology, dangers and even security underground…

Whether alone or with your family, you can choose between two kinds of tour: a guided tour in English OR a tour on your own with an audio guide.

The choice could be determined by the time of your arrival at the museum and the number of people you’re with. The guided tours are available only if you’re 3 people or more.

Below 3, you will have to use an audio guide or written documents as you like. They’re both available in English, Spanish, Italian and german, and in French of course.

Whichever kind of tour you’re on, the price and access to the rooms of the museum stay the same.

We advise you to call us before coming, in order to book your guided tour in English because the English speaking guide is not always available.

A guided tour lasts about 1.5 hours.

A tour on your own could last from 1 hour to almost as long as you want it to last (depending on the closure time and your interest of course).
