  • Know the real working life of miners is a feat. An explanatory documentary shows us the "birth" of coal. It is proposed that before the visit. He must go on the Site well laid out in order to become aware. "" What courage, deserving men having suffered "fear at the time of methane", short of breath, what great adventure announcing for the years to come the life and death of this underground world. Fortunately there are enthusiasts who cling to discover us. We viewers of helmeted and clean all day in the belly of the "beast" have shudder to the story of Fabien telling us about their adventures. He is passionate and exciting. You will have an exciting time." Jaurès, leave paid etc... another world! See

  • We visited this museum which we passed regularly during the European heritage days. Volunteers of the aspicc, associations of the former miners of carmaux/c. basin led the visit... a lot of emotions by appointment. It's an extraordinary thing that there is not so long to tell the mine by people who lived it. We discover a difficult but beautiful universe that we can't imagine when we live "in the day". The galleries show 100 years of developments in techniques, a visit to do, no doubt. Mining history, closely related to the social history of the country, to better understand a whole era.

  • Museum close to reality, you can put it all right away in the skin of a minor and feel the calvary that his men were able to live

  • 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.
  • Thanks to all these people who we showed this hard business at that time and which today sadly is not taken into account and recognized by the State. Thanks to the volunteers and the Aspicc association

  • To see absolutely. The visit is suitable for the youngest to the oldest. Meet you immersed in the world of the miners... The site would be a little more advertising because it is little mentioned in the tourist offices.
