"The coal-mine of Bois-du-Luc, one of the oldest in Belgium, closed in June 1973.
Through the determination of the inhabitants, this working class district, built between 1838 and 1853, was saved. Opposite this area you can visit the mine museum and discover how the miners lived, worked, what they endured and how they spent their free time. A team of guides offers you a guided tour through the different exhibition halls. You can see a reconstruction of their former way of life, a 1900 classroom, the Castelain gallery, the Pit Saint Josef and a 1850 house.
Relax whilst watching a film about coal mining. There is a range of publications available. Playground."
