Guided tour of the National Mining Museum - underground galeries


Discover Luxembourg’s iron mines.

The iron mines have played an active role in Luxembourg’s history and economy. From the 1870s to the 1990s, Luxembourg's iron mines had a major impact on the lives of the country’s inhabitants. Nowadays, we have forgotten what the daily life of the miners was like, the difficulty of their work, the kinds of tools they used. At the National Museum of Iron Mining, you’ll learn all about how mining works and discover more than a century of technological development through its a large collection, most of which is displayed in underground galleries.

The National Mining Museum can be visited by a guided tour in the company of a qualified guide. The tour starts with a short introduction in the exhibition building, after which the visitors are handed a helmet. The visitors then board a train to enter the mine; the journey takes about 20 minutes. Inside the mine, the tour continues on foot through the tunnels. The tour exits the mine by train through the Walert tunnel.
