The Bergbau- und Heimatmuseum Mühlbach is a museum about the 5000 years of mining history at Mühlbach. It shows lamps, tools and memorabilia of the miners.

The Erlebnisschaustollen Johanna-Stollen is an adit nearby, which was made accessible to visitors. On the days when the museum is open, there is also a guided tour into this adit. The tour starts at the museum.

A third sight is the mining trail, which is well signposted. The stops along this trail are Pingen (old open cast mines) and collapsed mines. The stops are described in the book Mühlbacher Wanderführer. Once a week is a free guided walk.
