    LVR-Industriemuseum St. Antony-Hütte
    LVR Industrial Museum St. Antony Ironworks
    LVR Industrial Museum St. Antony-Hütte - visit the birthplace of the Ruhr industryWould you like to experience the early days of the iron and steel industry up close? Then the LVR Industrial Museum St. Antony-Hütte in Oberhausen, the first ironworks in the Ruhr region, is the right place for you. The museum tells you about the beginning of this industry in 1758, which made a significant contribution to the development of the Ruhr region. Although at first glance you might not expect to find heavy industry in the idyllically situated half-timbered house on the Elpenbach pond in Oberhausen, pig iron flowed out of a blast furnace here for the first time.Of fraud, violence and power politicsOn more than 225 m² of exhibition space, the LVR Industrial Museum presents the exciting history of the St. Antony Ironworks in the former director's residence. The impressively designed permanent exhibition shows its role as the cradle of the Ruhr industry, the economic thriller that took place there and the global corporation that eventually developed from it. Fraud, violence, power politics and, last but not least, the delicate role of the church make up the material from which the drama of the first ironworks in the Ruhr region developed. The LVR Industrial Museum St. Antony-Hütte in Oberhausen presents all these exciting connections to you. In the adjacent LVR Industrial Archaeological Park, you can also marvel at the uncovered remains of the old works on an excavation site covering around 1,000 m².Playful learning for young visitorsEven the little ones won't miss out on a trip to St. Antony-Hütte. A playground right next to the museum provides fun and action. A ten-meter-high tower, which is modeled on a blast furnace, invites children to slide and climb. At the same time, playful and creative elements illustrate the processes inside the blast furnace to children. A large meadow next to the playground invites children to relax and have a picnic.
