    Very nice and more could make the visit with our dog (which however is not a small size). Movies are informative and well explained. The tour of the mines is superb. It is as transported to the time when the mine was exploited. We had a lovely guide, which we explained everything there was to see and which was very responsive to questions. The outdoor facilities are very interesting especially when you know that all this actually helps archaeologists working on the site.

    The staging of these recovered mines date much. The explanatory movies 3D doesn't strictly. Today quite exceeded as the reconstitution of the ovens that are planted in the lawn. However a lot of money has been investing in a research for CNRS oven serving... once a year... Luckily our guide, original English, was exciting and full of humor. Bravo for her, because she saved the visit.

    Good interesting tour. Was in French when we did it but I think there are English tours if you ring in advance.

    A very good idea to output whatever the weather. You learn a lot of things. Guided tour preceded by a film of explanation in 3D on the extraction of Galena until the recovery of the money. The visit concludes with a film on the history of money and the minting of money of money. I would highly recommend.

    A visit with a very friendly guide who will make you discover the extraction of silver and methods in the eighth, and the manufacturing of the currency. Plan a vest for the visit in the mine.
