32. Interactive tour through the National Mining Museum in Rumelange

The interactive tour allows children to step into the role of a miner. On foot, the participants will head down to their temporary workplace, rapidly noticing just how dark it can get underground. The children will learn about the dangers and challenges of working in poor lighting, equipped with nothing but an acetylene lamp. The children will be actively involved in the mining process as they assist the guide in drilling, breaking iron ore blocks, securing the roof, pushing the mining trolley and even witness a controlled explosion. As the children resurface into daylight after their shift ends, a present awaits them to reward them for their day‘s work.
