Show sight on map

The Upper Silesian State Museum (Oslm) in Ratingen is dedicated to the history and culture of Upper Silesia. The museum is the company in 1970 founded Haus Upper Silesia, a foundation of private law. It is located directly opposite the old museum building "Haus Upper Silesia" in Ratingen-Hösel, in which the foundation is currently based. The museum work is funded by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia based on § 96 BVFG. The basics are both the sponsorship of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for the Upper Silesians from 1964 living in Germany and the partnership with the Polish Voivodeship of Silesia since 2000. The focus of the museum is the cultural history of the area and the adjacent areas, the industrialization of the 19th century with the mining and heavy-industrial history of the Upper Silesian industrial area and the history of the 20th century. Nowadays, the collection, preservation, research and mediation of the Upper Silesian cultural heritage is in the foreground in the sense of the European dialogue.
