  • Very nice exhibition of coal mines industry. Excellent guide. Exhibition involves an underground walk, demonstrating miming technologies from different times.
  • Beautiful museum with tour through underground tunnels which are partly recreated as an old coal mine and partly authentic to store and transport coal underground to prevent bombings in the war. The mine itself is largely flooded and was operative from the thirties till the sixties in the 20th century. Tours in Italian, French and English every day, best to contact tourist office for reservation and up to date timetables. Guide spoke fluently English and gave a lot of information of high quality. The underground tunnels were very well set up and very interesting. The collection and information panels of the museum are absolutely worth a visit (also in English). Would totally recommend if you are into (coal) (mining) history.
