After the film, a mine guide will lead you through the world of coal mining. Our guides are former mine workers, come from mining families, or have some other strong connection with the mining world.
Experience the hard yet impressive world of the miners through their stories. The tour is a journey through time, showing you the machines that were used to extract coal.
Each visit is unique
The guides at the Steenkolenmijn coal mine museum have a wealth of experience and knowledge of working underground. Each guide has a unique presentation full of humour and personal anecdotes that make the past come alive.
The experience is reinforced by demonstrations of mining machinery. These machines work by means of a specially-installed compressed air system, just like they used to use in the mines.
Visitors with disabilities
The Steenkolenmijn and the Jan Kruysen Gallery are accessible for visitors with reduced mobility and wheelchair users.
