The unique character of the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, Leibniz Research Museum for Geo-resources, lies in the link created between a top-line research institute and a vibrant museum.

Our areas of research comprise: archaeometallurgy, mining history, materials science, mining archaeology, alongside the Research Laboratory and the Montanhistorisches Dokumentationszentrum (the Mining History Document Centre, or montan.dok). Our research projects are relevant and applicable in the national and international arena and are frequently conducted in partnership with prestigious university and non-university institutions, as well as partners in the worlds of culture and science.

Our research comprehensively explores, documents and assesses the development and history of mining as one of mankind's archetypal production activities, which remains indispensable to this very day.
