  • Nice place (as much outside as inside) combining exhibition and history. 1 level + 1 Appendix dedicated to the work of iron and the forge, with a true Smith producing the old nails. And 2 floors dedicated to the history of the train and railway. The staff is really friendly and helpful especially with children. Enjoy also the surroundings that are really very beautiful (water courses, building etc...)

  • Pretty interesting Museum, even for children. It is accessed by the Tourist Office. There is the possibility to download the Guide on our smartphones or borrow their tablets. In the 1st part of the Museum, we can discover all the iron work, with even a blacksmith working before us. Then there is the part on the upper floors, "railroad", with a nice model of trains and the ability to watch a movie on the train, and on the top floor the children (and adults!) can run trains on track using an electronic terminal. Nice!
