The Bergbaumuseum Sulzburg (Mining museum Sulzburg) is located in the former protestant church at the market place of the small badian town, at the rim of the Rheintal (Rhine Valley) and at the foot of the Schwarzwald (Black Forest). It is also called Landesbergbaumuseum Baden-Württemberg (mining museum of Baden-Württemberg), as it gives an overview on all mining areas and techniques of this country. However, the center of mining with most of the mines is located in the Schwarzwald.

The topics of the museum are mininge since the middle ages, ore mining, mineralogy, and the miner's culture. There are coins, medals, documents, and pictures on display, but also heraldic crests which have mining related symbols. The central topics odf the museum are the typical salt mining and ore mining in Baden-Württemberg. But there is also a small part about petroleum and natural gas, how it was deposited, formed deposits, and is today mined.

The location Sulzburg is obviously connected to the mining history, there were silver mines around the village in the wood covered mountains around. There is a 5 km long mining trail leading to the remains of those Medieval mining activites.
