Ruhr Museum - Review

Located within former coal washing plant of Zollverein Coal Mine complex, this museum is one of the top places of interest within the industrial complex.

In the permanent exhibition section of the museum, you get to see exclusive information that tells you about the historical background of the industrial regions of the world. This section was developed by the Stuttgart office HG Merz. This entire section has been further divided into four levels. You can reach to these levels through the outdoor escalator.

Ruhr Museum, Essen Reviews

Google+
  • A really awesome experience, so expertly brought to life by the superb English-speaking guide who gave us an invaluable insight into the horrendous working conditions and lives of those who worked there. Well deserved UNESCO status, and very reasonably priced too. Deserves to be promoted much more strongly. Also excellent parking and places to eat and drink on site.

  • Very intresting permanent exposition and impressive location. Incredibly, been a part of a Unesco site, not all indications are written in English, but only in German. If you don't speak German you will understand only the 70% of the informations, some of them at the very core of.the exposition.

  • Great insight into an impressive industrial complex. The inner workings are very well preserved and you can get up closeclose to see them.

  • This is a superb experience. Maybe not for very small children. It is a total steam punk paradise. Nice and weird subject: the region it lies in, in all it's aspects. You must have interest in old factories and nostalgic technology. Else it's not for you. You will see large halls of ancient machinery used to separate dirt from coal. Plus a view upon what the region has and had. I wouldn't not go on the guided tour: it takes two hours and half an hour would have been enough for the tour. The museum however, is gigantic. It takes almost all day just to walk through it. A walk around the buildings, as described on the available map, is highly recommended.

  • nice museum to learn about the history of ruhr area
