Watch history come to life as ex-miners share anecdotes and memories as they guide you underground!

Steeped in history, Neufchef's mining museum is an invitation to travel back in time and discover the world of iron ore mining in real iron mines used 200 years ago. Ex-miners take you on a guided tour deep underground, where you'll spend a kilometre travelling 150 years back in time to learn more about the iron miners of the past and Lorraine's mining industry.

Your tour of the mines ends with three exhibition rooms for you to peruse. Overflowing with fascinating pieces, including a unique collection of 250 mining lamps, documents and sets depicting living conditions from cafés to kitchens, this immersive experience plunges you right into the heart of the raucous vibrancy of an old mining community.
