  • It's an exposition of iron/meatl items. What makes it special is that the museum is located in the church.  more »
  • This is a one-of-a-kind museum, in a beautiful church filled with interesting metal works and tools. I was surprisingly fascinated by the look at daily life in generations past - seeing the tools...  more »
  • A small but very nice museum. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and since we had a long afternoon planned with the children it was actually a relief that the museum was small enough to make a small detour. They also had an exhibition about Paco Rabane on at that time. It was very interesting to learn that he was the first designer to experiment with the use of metal as a material for clothes!
  • Really friendly staff and quite a sight! As a non appreciated of art i thought that they had some wonderful pieces!
