Museum of the mine



In the heart of the southern Puy-de-Dôme mining basin, immerse yourself in the world of the mine: 160m of identically reconstructed galleries reproduce scenes of daily work and the real-life conditions of underground miners.

Come and immerse yourself in 5 centuries of coal mining history in Auvergne. The Mine Museum owes its particularity and originality to its galleries: no less than 160m of identically reconstructed galleries.
The Mine Museum is housed in the old mining machinery building. This is where the energy needed to mine coal was produced and transformed. This was also the site of the important machine that lowered and raised the shaft.
