The museum was inaugurated on 27 March 1991.
Our idea was to create an original, funny webpage. This is why we decided that our main page should represent an alien city and that you should be able to klick on different buildings in order to enter them: an Earth Museum, a school, and a newsagent. We chose the Earth Museum in order to have a place where we could display our articles about human scientists and the presentation of our solar system.

National Mining Museum
Only a few miles south of Luxembourg City, the capital of the Grand Duchy, lies Rumelange surrounded by hills dug over and over by man. In spite of the heavy industry the town has, thanks to its rich woods, preserved its charming character. It is because of the exploitation of iron-ore (which started already in Celtic and Gallo-Roman times) that Rumelange is often called "town of the Red Rocks". Today things have become quiet: closed mine-entrances, the townarms showing a miner and the MINING-MUSEUM are the remains of that former activity
The museum displays objects from more than 150 years of Luxembourg's postal history. Different telecommunications equipment, a morse telegraph line and a manual telephone switchboard are kept in working order. An original stage-coach (1880), a richly-carved counter and many former postman's uniforms create a nostalgic atmosphere.
