Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

AMAZING, If you visit Belgium this a place to visit.
All about the terrible accident that occurred on the 8th of August 1956 in the coal mine.

There are much better museums of mining, but this covers general industrial history of the region well, and it’s coverage of the pit disaster is unequalled, perhaps as it’s much more recent than British ones, so the photos and news coverage feels relevant. The extra €1 for the audio guide is worth it. The conversations are rather contrived, but add a lot to the site.

We got the number 52 bus from Charleroi Gare Sud and cosy €2.50 to get there and only took 12 minutes each way.

The cost to get on ale Bois du Cazier was €8 and an extra €1 for the audio which was in English.

You was given a map and all the places had numbers on and when you get there you type the number in the audio and it will tell you all about it and I found it very interesting and informative then if I was just walking around.

We spent 2 1/2 hours there and it was very quiet which was nice.

There was a small glass museum there which had some lovely pieces.

Well worth a visit.

Interesting testimony on the mining disaster. Combined with a history of the walloon industry. Partly inside, partly outside.

This museum and memorial to 262 Italian, Belgian, and other miners killed in a tragic coal mine accident in 1956 is important in Belgium's modern history. That it is housed on the very site, with many of the buildings and much of the machinery still intact is all the more impressive. Combining this with the museum of industry was a stroke of genius, and the audiovisual exhibits highlight this important fact: in the heyday of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, brand-new Belgium (established 1830) was already the world's number two industrial power (after Great Britain, and ahead of the US!).

To fill the time before heading to Charleroi airport, I visited this museum and it was really well presented and interesting. We did not have much time, so chose not to take the audio-guide, but most of the information was in French/Dutch and English, so easy enough. We would have loved to walk in the area to see the slagger mountains etc, but we ran out of time.
