Everything is said in my title. This museum helps to understand how Luxembourg developed from an agricultural into an industrial country, and how this created the baseline for the wealth of the country nowadays. It also helps understand the hard work people had to do after WW2 to make a living, and how this is the baseline of the productivity... More

The tour takes about two hours. A train takes you underground for several kilimeters, and lets you out at the tour area. You walk about a half km. through tunnels, rooms and galleries with mining exhibits. They illustrate the history of iron mining in Luxembourg and have a considerable collection of the various mining equipment including some giant loaders and... More

We had a guided tour with our local "Seniors" club on a rather cold and snowy afternoon. Usuallly there is a small train which takes you through the open cast mining area before entering the mine, Due to the adverse weather making the track slippery the train wasn't used so we had to walk the first the first few hundred...

Me and my friends enjoyed the 2h we spent discovering the Mine Museum in Rumelange. Rene, our guide, was an incredible host, he was taking a wonderful care of all the kids in the group (which by the way were not ours) and made sure that everyone else understood the life as a miner. He covered all our question and... More

Really an interesting tour. Neat to see how mining worked over the past 100 some years. It got a little long for me at the end. I think we were underground for about 2 hours. I was ready to be done at 1.5 hours. Tour guide was great, and made it interesting. As others have noted, it is cool down... More

The tour starts with viewing the history of the mine and collecting helmets before boarding a little train for the 2km ride underground. It is not claustrophobic as the mine ceiling heights are high. It is cold down the mine so remember your coat! They do have fleeces and coats for anyone who has forgotten their coat - free of... More

It's a museum with spectacular presentation, visitors can see the arduous nature of the miner's work, in the underground galleries; The collection of the Mining Museum in Rumelange, consists of machines, tools and equipement, and archive documents of the exploitation of iron.

This museum is a must visit. It is hard, it is impressive, and it is depressing to learn how we treated our fellow men and women for the sake of coal, and the extraordinary wealth of the few owners. An eloquent statement in defense of trade unions, of health and safety laws.
