Musee-Mine Departemental Reviews
Très belle visite guidée à faire. Visite très intéressante et enrichissante ! Accessible aux enfants. Privilégier les enfants à partir de 7-8 ans qui comprendront mieux. more »Very nice guided tour to do. Very interesting and rewarding visit! Accessible to children. Choose children from 7-8 years old who will understand better.
Nous avons fait cette visite en famille, avec 2 jeunes enfants et avons été ravis. C'est très instructif (aussi bien pour les adultes que les enfants) et même si ce n'est qu'une reconstitution, c'est ... more »We made this visit with family, with 2 young children and were delighted. It's very informative (for both adults and children) and even if it's just a reenactment, it's very well done, with the galleries and material of the time. This is a very nice initiative of this association and this museum is well worth a visit. Tip: Come as soon as you open if you visit in the morning, as the museum closes at 12.30pm, there is no time to see the exhibitions once the guided tour (11am) is done otherwise. And if you want to extend in the same vein, push up Cape Discovery (next door) or you can see the Titans Park (huge machines for the operation of the open pit mine, very impressive).
By far the most moving exhibition I have ever seen. At some point, I felt like I really explored the places displayed at this exhibition by myself. Wait, maybe I really did? Beautiful museum and the visit is a must. Kids will also love it.
Initially we did not plan this visit but in the end we are delighted and we would have missed one of the best moments of our November holiday. Just for the Guide, who made us share the history of minors, it's worth coming! The kids loved it! We were immersed in the daily life of the mine, with lots of anecdotes, the shot of GRISOU.... In short an educational and playful visit. I thank our guide who was very pedagogue, listening, who knew how to convey his knowledge, interest small and big and answer all the questions. I highly recommend this visit!
