Leuke rondleiding, bij uitgang drie borden denk aan de gids, wordt er ook nog gevraagd om fooi, ja dat werkt bij mij averechts

Ik heb helaas claustrofobie dus dit was voor mij zelf iets minder. Maar mijn familie vond het wel leuk

Loont echt de moeite als je wat meer info over het steenkool verleden wil te weten komen...zeer mooi nagebouwd met authentieke zaken uit de mijnen. Onderhoudende uitleg met enkele leuke demonstraties. Wel zonde dat men dan 5 euro extra vraagt om je wagen kwijt te geraken
