Owner description: C-mine is a gem of industrial heritage and brings you the stories of the mine in a contemporary, creative and imaginative way. Do you want to know how dark it really was in the old coal mine or see the miners at work? Then come to C-mine expedition, where you will pay a virtual and real-life visit to the Winterslag mine.

this is a must when you come to Genk, very interesting, with high respect for all the people that worked in the mines from Genk, going back in the time!

There’s free access to explore some old machinery, art and a labyrinth. We took part in a very nice Family Game called “Waar is Cyriel de Krekel?” (Where’s Cyriel the Cricket?). In this game one explores a part of the old mine and its history and can climb to the top of one of the towers (with lots of steps, the tower is 60 metres high). On top of this tower is a nice view of the surroundings of Genk. At the end of the game is a virtual reality activity.
If you’re hungry or thirsty you can go to the Brasserie in the old mine building. C Mine has very friendly staff. And there’s enough, free parking.

Nice to visit but we expected more the feeling of a mine and the history of the life of the mine and the miners. It's a bit modern and they brought lot's of extras to the expedition that don't bring added value. Thanks to the virtual reality experience in the end, the visit made us happy again. The virtual reality experience was the best of the whole expedition and showed the life of the mine and miners back in the days.

Indeed the virtual reality is very nice, but except for that their is almost nothing to see in the C-mine. Almost no pictures or information.. After one hour we were already at the exit. We would have loved an additonal museum.
Luckily you can find only 3 km further a museum made by the old mine workers at Waterschei in Thorpark. They give tours on saturday and sunday afternoon. Their are alot of atributes, old clothes, lamps, machines etc. and you can ask alot of questions. I did not like C-mine but I loved the personal tour at Waterschei, Thorpark.
