We liked the Museum quite well, since it gives a good insight into the tradition and history of the region. The guided tour was well done. The part of the mueum below the surface needs a little overhaul since many of the paperboard figures are quite run down... The temporary exhibition is quite interesting as well.

A tour in a real coal mine, for everyone who wants to understand the mining life. Very instructive for all the family.

Did not know what to expect, but it was great and authentic! My French is not great and the tour was only in French, but still amazing. Not for those who do not like tight spaces!
