Explore the Bourlamaque Mining Village where his pretty log homes are still inhabited. Using an audio-guide, wander through the streets of this village, where the past is still present, and discover its history (all year). Make a stop at the historic house, where a new interactive exhibition is presented in a residential setting of the 1940s. Experience yesteryear’s family life through a variety of themes such as social dilemmas faced by the inhabitants of the mining village; the challenge of settling in an emerging resource-rich landlocked region; women and their roles as managers of the home environment; the struggle for power between the union movement, employers and the political and religious circles; intercultural cohabitation; living on the borders of legality and its temptations.
