The working group Muttenthalbahn has been based below Schloss Steinhausen directly by the river Ruhr in Witten-Bommern since 1989.
The used premises belong to the now defunct Zeche[colliery] Theresia which closed down as far back as 1892. This mine had played a role in the early days of the mining industry south of the Ruhr. Our working group had redeveloped the listed colliery buildings which now serve as a good homestead for the museum.

We wish you an enjoyable perusal of our page and are looking forward to welcome you in the museum!

 

 


Our latest report:

Artifact relocation

After finishing the closeout work at our “yard of artifacts” last week, an article has been posted in the WAZ (a local german newspaper) telling the background story and explaining some possible future expansions of our museum (a new “hall of artifacts” behind ‘Zeche Nachtigall’ and a connection to the existing railway system).

This article is only available in german language: https://www.waz.de/staedte/witten/wittener-verein-plant-neues-grubenbahnmuseum-id215026743.html

Best regards
Your Muttenthalbahn
