Notes,
Yesterday I spend the afternoon looking around this old coal mining complex which is now a museum. The Ruhr area had a very heavy industrial past and this was a great place to find out more. In addition to leaning about how the mining complex once operated you can find out all about how life in the Ruhr has evolved over the years. I have to say though the most impressive part of the visit was the super super long escalator which takes you up four stories high to the museum entrance.
