Review of the International Museum Day on 15 May 2022

Entrance coffee shop hut tavern

The International Museum Day was a success for the sponsorship group kings’ hut (Koenigshuette). About 500 visitors found their way to the Industrial Monument kings’ hut (Koenigshuette), a colorfully mixed in terms of age. The activities offered by the sponsorship group - from the obligatory show casting to the information rally to the hands-on activities of the Children's Protection Association - were well received.

International Museum Day - 2022_05_15

This year May 15 we celebrate International Museum Day. We from the sponsorship group kings’ hut (Foerderkreis Koenigshuette) are also participating again. We are looking forward to welcoming you, dear visitors, on the grounds of the industrial monument. We are still in the preparations, but we have found some new attractions for our visitors. Besides the guided tours, the show casting and the information rally for children and young people the sewing meeting place, which found its place in the factoring house two years ago, has opened, here self-sewn things can be purchased.

We were also able to win over the child protection association, which will bring a number of attractions for children and young people. It is also planned that the THW will be there again. Of course, we will also take care of the physical well-being of our visitors: In the coffee shop in the hut tavern there will be hot and cold drinks and homemade cakes, and at noon there will be a barbecue in front of the iron store. During the barbecue there will be background music from the hurdy-gurdy. We look forward to seeing you, dear visitors.

Guided tours start again

No guided tours at the moment

Due to the current Corona situation and the decreed winter hibernation that is about to be extended, we on the board have decided not to offer guided tours. This is to protect you and our members who normally guide you around the grounds and through the ‘Südharzer Eisenhüttenmuseum’, the South Harz ironworks museum. As a small compensation we have worked out a virtual tour of the site, you can find it under the tab 'Ensemble' and there under 'Tour'. In addition to the tour with a view of the individual buildings of the ensemble, there is also an insight into the foundry building and the machine factory as well as a tour through the museum. The tour was intentionally not created as a slide show, so you can look at the photos at your leisure. There are short explanations to each photo, in German and in English.
