The Centro di Documentazione delle Miniere di Lignite (Lignite Mines Documentation Centre) shows the history of the mines of Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni. Lignite or brown coal is a low quality coal which contains a lot of water, sulfur, and other organic chemical compounds. It was used primarily for heating. Museo delle Miniere (Mine Museum) is located in a communal building at Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni. The exhibits include tools and materials needed for the excavation of lignite and a mineral collection. There is a library, an archive and a photo library. The most impressive exhibit is a huge block of lignite, the last remains of the lignite deposit as it is exhausted.
