Activities for children and young people

Educational offerings

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.

During the autumn holidays, our visitor's mine is open to you from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You go underground on your own and follow the tour. You do not need to book or register for your visit. You explore the mine on your own.

Please note that program changes or cancellations may occur at short notice. Please inform yourself on our homepage and during opening hours (Tues. to Sun. between 09:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) by calling the Visitor Service at +49 234 5877-126.

You can also find more information in the Visitor section here on the website.

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).
