LVR-Industriemuseum St. Antony-Hütte

Discover Industrial Culture

An idyllically situated half-timbered building by the Elpenbach pond in Oberhausen – you wouldn't expect heavy industry here. And yet you're standing in front of the first ironworks in the Ruhr Area – the St.-Antony-Hütte. LVR-Industriemuseum presents the St.-Antony-Hütte's exciting history in the former director's residence, where you can experience the beginning of the iron and steel industry in 1758. Directly opposite on the St.-Antony-Hütte excavation site, you will discover Germany's first industrial archaeological park, which brings the once pulsating ironworks back to life.
