Information for visitors:

During the day the restaurant is a catering facility for visitors to the museum. Even those who simply want to pay a spontaneous visit to the restaurant have to pay the normal museum entrance fee. Guests who only wish to visit the restaurant should reserve a table at the latest on the day before, by calling 0231 6903236. With such a reservation there is a reduced entrance charge of only 1 euro per person. If there is no reservation at the time of your visit, you will have to pay the full entrance price.

The restaurant is open to the public from 6 pm.

For families

There is a playground for pre-school children (up to 7 years) behind the "Pferdestall" beer garden. Here children can play to their heart's content in the summer: slide down from a small pithead frame, sift sand and, above all, splash around with sand and water as much as they like. There is also a water pump and many mud pits and boxes as well as a wide net swing.

Children over 7 years of age can enjoy a cable car and spiral slide on the extended playground behind the historic workshop. The equipment is modelled on installations that used to exist below the surface. Picnic tables are also available in the immediate vicinity of the playground.


Dogs may be taken on a leash into the outdoor area. However, dogs are not allowed in the buildings, with the exception of guide and assistance dogs.
