  • This is a museum that is absolutely worth a visit! Didactic and interactive course that makes us discover the iron industry at Vallorbe as very few people know. A very comprehensive and very documented presentation that will surprise more than one. Highly recommended for all those who do not know that was made of iron from the 16th century to Vallorbe and about.

  • A museum not to be missed. A place where we discover many things. The iron work is highlighted. Positions videos presenting different works. The manufacture of chains in the former and the creation of files by hand and then to the modern way... The railroad part is in see also; The film on the Simplon line is interesting and ask its implementation to the Fund (in the case of few visitors).

  • A visit to this cozy and friendly Museum is very worthwhile. Especially with guidance, he will become an experience and you can learn a lot about the history of iron industry Vallorbe's, who has resided until the present day (the production of world-leading high-iron tools, in particular arrows, there still in Vallorbe!). The forging demonstrations at the Museum are interesting. Also, there are many by Hydro powered machines in the old Studio rooms. Currently also a small special exhibition is devoted to the topic of Damascus Steel, this rediscovered forging technology is dominated by some employees of the Museum, as well as forging and artists in the area and used. The railway part of the Museum is rather small and just kept, you can drive around some model trains, and learn about the historic tunnel construction of the nahegeligenen railway. I really liked the Museum. We had a guide for engineers (outing), which was held by an enthusiastic historian. MAS should bring enough time and leisure, then you can discover the true treasures of de Museum. The tours are offered at a very reasonable price, so that you really can afford it as a very small group.
