Welcome to the Muttenthalbahn light railway
All you need to know about the mining and narrow-gauge railway museum and operating days with further details on the Muttenthalbahn can be found on this page.
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:
Dates for 2018 + Thank you
The dates for this year are available online! We’re looking forward to see you.
We are very pleased about an extraordinary donation from the NRW Foundation. Because our museum is mainly running by donations and membership fees, we need these additional donations to acquire new things and to expand the museum. Many thanks to the NRW Foundation for their support!
At this point, we would also like to thank all the other sponsors and helpers for their (partly long-standing) support. No matter if donations of money, donations in kind or working support, without all of you, our museum would not be, what it is today. Thank you!
For a happy year 2018
