The National Mining Museum has developed an interactive tour targeted at children aged 6 to 14. It enables the child to identify with the mineworkers.
The tour starts with a short introduction in the exhibition building, after which the visitors are handed a helmet. The tour is done entirely on foot and lasts 2 hours. The tour is open to groups of 18 children maximum accompanied by an adult – so perfectly suitable for birthday party.
The average temperature inside the mine is 10° C all year round. It is thus important to wear appropriate warm clothing. The mine tunnels are free of danger. Visitors are advised to wear flat-heeled shoes. Helmets are mandatory. Dogs are not admitted into the mine. Interactive groups can have lunch or dinner at the Brasserie du Musée.
