Activities for 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.

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 follow current AHA rules. During the week, the visitors' mine is open to the public only on guided tours, and on weekends without guided tours. You can also find up-to-date information about your visit here.

Program changes or cancellations may occur at short notice. Therefore, please inform yourself on our homepage about the currently valid Corona protection requirements for guided tours and events. You are also welcome to contact our visitor service by telephone during opening hours (Tues. to Sun. between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) at +49 234 5877-126.

Children's Birthdays

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).

You would like to celebrate your child's birthday also culinarily in the museum? Please contact our museum restaurant KUMPELS.
