Leather and Tanning Museum

Mülheim on the River Ruhr was for long one of the chief leather working towns in Germany, and its industrial heritage is commemorated in a museum opened in 2003 in the former factory of the Abel company. Ultra-modern displays feature tools used in tanning and leather-working, together with the varied products of the industry. Manufacturing methods are illustrated by documentary films.
