Last testimony on coal mining in the Tarn, the departmental mine museum sheds both technical and social lights on seven centuries of coal-mining history. The headframe and the descent of the shaft leads to the discovery of 350 meters of rebuilt galleries where machines and tools are presented in situation, in order to share the miner’s work and living conditions.
Permanent showrooms evoke the social history that forged the identity of these places and men who worked on the lands of Jaurès. Finally, temporary exhibitions enhance the industrial and environmental mining patrimony.
