For school trips, the Tellure Mine Theme Park can be a one-of-a-lifetime moment within the framework of your educational outings.
After visiting the museum, the educational and teaching team can choose between five different Saint-Jean Engelsbourg mine tours, from walking to mine caving.
For teachers, we have documentation allowing for better preparation of educational tours. (Document: a Mine of Info).
Possibility of sending you this documentation upon request.
Also available upon request at the Tellure Park or by a simple request by mail, we propose game books to test your knowledge on the Tellure mining world or for classroom work.
A pleasant picnic area is available for you. In the event of storms, we also have a function room where you can eat upon request.
