Cogne

opening days and times Prices

The mine presented as a mix of stories, sounds and emotions.

A few steps from the centre of Cogne you can visit an interesting exhibition on the extraction of minerals in the Aosta Valley region.

The complex of the miners’ village, reachable by taking the road that climbs towards the village of Gimillan, houses the museum in the main building in front of the square and in the one adjacent to the arrival of the old mine buckets.

In addition to an overview of the places where these precious minerals are found in the Aosta Valley (Brusson, Cogne, La Thuile, Ollomont, Saint-Marcel) you can relive the experience of life in the mine, in particular in the Cogne deposits: workplaces, the difficulty of tunnel operations up to the last journey of the extracted material to Aosta for its transformation.

Experiences and stories surround the visitor: a leap in time and history to the sound of the pickaxe.
