Information about your visit to our Museum

We want to continue to offer our visitors and everyone in front of and behind the scenes who makes a visit to the museum possible a high level of safety. Since the visit to the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, with its tower tour and exhibition mine, offers experiences where it is still important to observe protective and hygienic measures, we are pleased if our visitors follow current AHA rules.

We at the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum invite you to continue to observe the following behavioural and protective measures during your visit to our museum:

  • All exhibition areas are open and all educational activities and events can be offered in compliance with hygiene plans
  • Visits to the visitors’ mine will continue to be possible only under restrictions for the time being: with guided tours during the week and individually on weekends
  • Please remember the AHA rules in situations where many people gather in a confined space
  • The museum gastronomy "Kumpels" is open as well as the museum store
