  • ST E is the industry: steel and coal but also textile and cycle. Must-see Museum. Historical walk cultural and educational, not boring!

  • For collectors and lovers of the old weapons, especially firearms, the 2nd floor of this museum is top. However there are errors with some legends. Otherwise I recommend the 1st for the extraordinary looms for the production of ribbons and trimmings.
