A fascinating insight to mining and the lives of miners in France with something for all ages, the highlight being the guided tour 'down 'the mine to see how mining changed through the ages. A good day out whatever the weather.

If you are anywhere near this museum you must go. The official visit is about one hour but there are plenty of other things to see. It has a nice cafe, shop etc.

The museum is a great reconstruction of the lives and works of the mining people - following all the steps of the technological development. The guide (in our case Anne Claire) was amazing
