Description

Arigna Mining Experience center  was developed to preserve the energy heritage of the Arigna Valley and to ensure that Arigna maintains its link with Energy themes: Past, Present & Future.

During the underground tour, visitors will experience what it was like to work in some of the narrowest coal seams in the western world. The tour which will last 45 minutes brings visitors to the  coal face of the mine,  where the methods used to extract  coal are demonstrated.  Lighting and sound effects in the mine, add to the authenticity of the underground experience.

Accompany an ex-miner on a tour which is literally a journey through a miner's life. The dripping of water, the intensity of the darkness, the sight of the cramped areas in which the miners lay on their sides in pools of water, leaves  visitors astounded that such working conditions existed until relatively recent times.
