The Pewter Figure Museum has now existed in Goslar for over 35 years and it is hard to imagine the cultural life of the town without it. In the historic Lohmühle in Goslar you will find the most beautiful Tin figure museum in Germany. Here you will meet a wide variety of tin figures and they will all tell you their story. Discover the history and development of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Harz Mountains in 50 dioramas, some of which are interactive.
World Heritage Site "Old Town in Goslar"
The history and development of the town of Goslar was strongly influenced by mining and this is still evident in many places in the town. Marvel at the town's history in the smallest format and experience the development of the imperial town in tin.
World Heritage Site: Rammelsberg Mining
Almost 1000 years of mining history can be traced at Rammelsberg. With us, you don't have to go underground to experience the impressive mine. Let our tin figures guide you comfortably through the shafts and tunnels of the mine.
World Cultural Heritage "Oberharzer Wasserwirtschaft"
(Upper Harz Water Management)
By using water power for mining, a masterpiece of early mining and engineering was created in the Upper Harz. Discover the interrelationships of a complex economic system with the help of tin figures and models.
In addition to the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, scenes from the 30 Years War and Fairytale World are also on display. There is a quiz on the fairytale world in English, Danish, Dutch and Ukrainian. Ever-changing special exhibitions illustrate the diversity of the tin figure and invite visitors to stroll and marvel.
