  • The visit to the mine was a pleasant and instructive surprise. A fascinating telling Flemish Guide gave the necessary but not too long-winded explanation. A must for young and old.

  • Working as a guide in the Center historical mining of the North Pas-de-Calais (Lewarde) I was very curious to discover the site of Blegny-Mine. I was absolutely not disappointed! The road was long of Cambrai until Blegny (2 h), fortunately a nice picnic area has allowed me to enjoy the outdoors of the site: playgrounds for children and accessible to all pit tile! Before the descent to the bottom, a small discovery of the Museum was needed. Quite modest, it still contains a very rich collection of objects. What struck me most impressed is the very wide variety of exposed compressors. Then the tour! This last 2 hours: that seems a lot, but we see no time pass! First part allows a video summarizing the formation of coal and mining history in Belgium. For the second part, we're joined by a former-miner guide that equips us helmets and overalls. Thanks to Albert for this very nice tour! Descent by the real cage to 30 metres deep, then passage by a staircase to get to-60 meters. I was most impressed, it's the humidity! Finally, the third part of the visit is the ascent to the surface to discover the yard-screening. I loved the effort to highlight these rooms with a set of lights, sounds and images projected on older machines. Time faults, I didn't get to walk on the waste dump adjacent to the site but be aware that the latter is freely accessible. Summary for, it's an amazing site to absolutely find for lovers of mine!

  • Impressive to visit the mines themselves and the machines to see and hear. You get a very good picture of the work downunder, and it continues to hang on for a while if you're outside. Nicely prepared and maintained. We decided to join a French group, but found our guide not as clear to mean always. After several clarifications to questions I didn't have the impression that the Guide decided the pace and pronunciation. My girlfriend was served by English-language audio phone, it occurred to me that the Narrator had much less telling than the Guide itself, there is some info lost. It is regrettable that the beautiful signs drawn up only in French, seen so many foreign visitors from countries of origin of the migrants that the my visits, and tourists. One would be the limited texts on 1 day can translate and place on the provided panels, here it is anyway a stitch. Already the second time I go visit them and would not let, impressive for everyone, young and old! Unesco World Heritage site!

  • We had a great guide/former worker who was exceptionally good at his job! Lots of jokes but also interesting stories and history! He really made it worthwhile. Lot's of other things to do on the site also. Highly recommended for all ages.
  • Great place. Historical.
  • Great historical site and museum. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides.
  • Really interesting place and possible to get a guided tour 60m below ground.
  • Very nice visit! Definitely worth the 10 euros entrance fee. It's a pity that the guide seemed to hurry us through the mine...
