Historic Site
Coal, mined in the region since the 13th century, provided the backbone to industries that fueled the cultural growth of the region. Amis du Musée de la Mine (Association) commemorates the history of the coal-mining industry through the pictures and stories of the people who worked in and around the mines, many of whom had to endure danger and hardship on the job. However, it doesn't ignore the stories of the mine's owners through the centuries and the mine's contributions to the region's growth. You’ll also learn about the changes in technology and fuel use that led to the closure of the mine in the 1980s.
