Well, I'm not sure how bad it is, I didn't get in! We arrived 25 minutes before the tour and the parking lot was full, so we couldn't get in. It was not possible to find a parking lot closer than 25 min on foot, so I ended up dropping my family of at the entrance and then I waited for them at the distant parking lot. My family told me I didn't miss much, there was total chaos and the tour was in Dutch. They give you an english pamflet to compensate. Ridicilous that there are no guides that speak english at a tourist attraction. Well, the conclusion must be, that this is only for dutch people! Tip: Arrive at least 30 min before the tour and park at Couberg parking (€2 per hour - you need coins!) near the casino.

Het spijt ons dat u niet de rondleiding heeft gehad die u had verwacht. Het is vanwege corona extreem druk omdat nu iedereen met de auto komt. Onze excuses hiervoor.

Very nice mine, you get a real good view of the life in the mines, even though this mine is a replica because most real mines have collapsed or are flooded

This is worth a visit because you will be entertained by real people with real stories. Most of the machinery is real and you get some sense of what it must have been like in the 1960's and 70's with the demonstrations. The Netherlands did mine coal and this museum keeps that fact alive. It gives you a little understanding of what the work must have been like for the brave miners who mined the coal that produced heat, electricity which helped advance living standards.

Very nice place to visit and learn more about the coalmines and how it worked. The guide was very funny and told a lot of real stories. You spend almost 1 hour there, but it`s worth.

You start your vist with a movie about the hard labour underground, this is the first you take your hat off for those miners.... The visit starts on a slow pace but get more and more impressive along the way. Even when your are not 500 meters below the surface, the feeling is there... all the machinery the used is on show and working, I could not have worked all they in such a noice. The approx. 75 minutes tour gives you a good impression of what the life of a coalminer must have been and I for one am not jealous at all...
