Children and Young People
You want to take your children on a visit to our museum? Then, you really have to see the visitor’s mine. Of course, we also offer you the option of registering your children for kids’ workshops and guided tours. All children's activities consist of a theoretical component and a practical one, allowing them to learn new things, while also trying out activities themselves.
As of Tuesday, November 03, 2020, the Deutsche Bergbau-Museum Bochum, Leibniz Research Museum for Geo-resources, is temporarily closed for visitors. The museum is thus following the new Corona Protection Ordinance issued by the federal and state governments. Information on the resumption of visitor operations will be provided on a daily basis in accordance with the relevant ordinances.
We offer a one-hour and a two-hour event for children’s birthdays. As well as having a lot of fun, the kids will learn new information and can take a souvenir home with them. All two-hour events are available from Tuesday to Sunday, on public holidays and during school holidays in North-Rhine Westphalia. The one-hour events can only be booked from Tuesday to Friday, outside of the school holidays in North-Rhine Westphalia (not on public holidays).
