Description

© Florian Kleinefenn

The Parc-Musée de la Mine is located in the eastern part of Saint-Étienne, the second largest city in the Loire department after Lyon.

The Museum de la Mine is dedicated to the mining of coal, which made Saint-Étienne famous, along with the local arms factories. The exhibition includes tools and equipment used to extract the minerals and coal seams also on display. It was only during the world mining crisis in the 1970s that coal mining in Saint-Étienne also ceased. The museum is located directly at a coal mining tower, which is still very well preserved for illustrative purposes.

The Musée de la Mine also offers guided tours through the underground galleries, where the railway tracks are still in place. Outside the building, you can take a stroll through the Puits Couriot park, which was created in 2012, and admire the sculpture of a miner.
