Zeche Zollern II/IV, Westfalian Museum of Industry, Dortmund
(4.4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Here's a fascinating tidbit for the day: This grand old building, now Zeche Zollern II/IV, Westfalian Museum of Industry, was once a coal mine. Natch, the museum focuses on the German coal-mining industry. Admire the impressive "mansion of labor," and study a variety of artifacts from the industry’s heyday. Stories from the 20th-century workers themselves immerse you in the conditions the men and women endured. Children will enjoy the coal-mine play area, but they're likely to get wet and dirty, so bring a change of clothes for them so you all can stop for food or drinks at the onsite restaurant. Our Dortmund vacation planner makes visiting Zeche Zollern II/IV, Westfalian Museum of Industry and other Dortmund attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
