National Mining Museum


Iron Ore Mining

Enjoy an unforgettable experience at the National Mining Museum at Rumelange. The traditional tour starts aboard a mine train which first takes you through old opencast mines and then enters the underground mine through the Langengrund tunnel. The museum has a collection that shows more than a century of technological evolution.

The collection of the National Mining Museum includes tools, machinery and archive documents in relation to iron ore mining in Luxembourg from the mid-19th century until the 1980s.

In the mining tunnels

The largest part of the collection is on display in the mine's original tunnels. Presented in their original location, the machinery and tools are a vivid reminder of mining as it was. This exhibition gives the visitor a real understanding of the mineworkers.

Once underground, the visitor continues the tour on foot with a guide, to discover the techniques of ore extraction and the subterranean work in an iron ore mine. The mine is exited by train through the Walert tunnel, back to the Museum’s reception building.

Access to the interior of the mine is always in groups, and departure times are subject to the number of visitors. There may be some waiting time between successive departures, but as far as possible this will not be longer than 30 minutes.

Outdoor Area

The outdoors of the National Mining Museum still give an idea on how a working mining site was structured. Walk around freely to get an overview of the site before your museum and mine visit.
