During the NRW summer vacations from 22 June to 04 August 2023, the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum cordially invites you and your whole family to guided tours, events and educational offers. All offers for adults as well as hands-on activities and workshops for children and young people have been compiled for you on this page.

During the summer vacations, our exhibition mine is open to you from 10:00 a.m. to 04:00 p.m. You can go underground on your own and follow the tour. You do not need a reservation or registration for your visit. You can explore the exhibition mine on your own.

A separate audio guide tour is offered for all four tours of the permanent exhibition as well as for the demonstration mine. The audio tours are presented in German and English. In addition, there is an audio guide tour for the mine especially for children from the age of 8. The audio guides are available in the free app of the German Mining Museum Bochum in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Please note that there is no Internet access in the demonstration mine, so you should ideally download the audio guide already at home.

You can find the complete range of events during the summer holidays in our events calendar.

There may always be program changes or cancellations at short notice. Please inform yourself on our homepage and during opening hours (Tues. to Sun. between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) by calling the visitor service at +49 234 5877-126.
