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:

  • We’re still here and back again!

    For the Muttentalfestival on April, 10th we’re opening our gates again!

    Then again on Easter Monday, 18th of April and after that in the old ‘usual rhythm’, so each first sunday of the month until October.

    The highlights this year will be the ‘Muttentalfest’ by the Stadtmarketing Witten already taking place the next weekend and our anniversary:

    20 years Gruben- und Feldbahnmuseum Zeche Theresia on the 10th & 11th of September 2022!
