Deutsches Bergbau - Museum Bochum


The Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, founded in 1930, is a Leibniz Research Museum for Georesources committed to the mission of collecting, preserving, researching, exhibiting and communicating the material heritage of mining.

We fulfil this mission above and below ground, locally in Bochum, regionally, nationally and internationally. Our credo is: Spread knowledge - experience mining. We do all this under one roof.

Our research areas include archaeometallurgy, mining history, materials science, mining archaeology as well as the research laboratory and the mining history documentation center.

In the four tours of our permanent exhibition - hard coal, mining, mineral resources, art - and in our demonstration mine, we convey the fascination for the worlds of mining.
