More than 800 exhibits on the subject of mining
The mining collection documents the mining industry in Rheinhausen from its beginnings to the present day. The exhibition keeps the world of the miner alive for future generations. There are more than 800 exhibits, including tools, minerals, lamps, certificates, photos and personal mementos. Most of the exhibits come from former miners at the Diergardt-Mevissen pit. A fully functional model of the former Diergardt I/II colliery – complete with pit pony and pit boy – transports visitors into the world of the mine.
