Options for parents and children

Family visits paper machine

Papiermühle Alte Dombach (Paper Mill) is very suitable for families because here parents together with their children can experience paper close-up. Various family options turn the museum visit into an experience for visitors of all ages.

Each 1st Sunday in the month there is a guided tour for children and families during which children from the age of four are shown how paper and carton are made and used in a manner appropriate to their age and in many activity-oriented options.

In the Easter, summer and autumn holidays there are various different workshops and handicraft options relating to the topic paper for children and adolescents.


Children playing on the grounds of the themed playground

The outdoor museum premises with benches beckon one to stay a while to play or to have a picnic.

In addition the topic playground “Kleine Dombach”, inaugurated in the summer of 2014, provides more space to play. Whilst playing, children are introduced to the topic of water power usage and therefore to some of the history of the town of Bergisch Gladbach. The playground was a joint project of the Association of Friends and the LVR-Industriemuseum.
