ABOUT PEOPLE AND MACHINERY

Twelve men and women, born between 1660 and 1965, sweep you along in a universal story about people and machines, and how machines have changed the world around us. Discover more in five discovery stations full of historical films, impressive machines and exciting trivia. Discover the Mule Jenny spinning machine - smuggled to the continent in the 18th century by Lieven Bauwens - and the Twine Mill, the Museum of Industry’s prized pieces.

Listen to the many personal stories, stroll round the self-actor, learn about steam and power, and put your ear to one of the many yellow listening poles to hear what it has to say.

And the icing on the cake? A breath-taking panoramic view out over the historical city centre!
TINKER STUDIO

Itching to try things out yourself? Then stop by the tables behind the stands and experiment with different materials in the Tinker Studio.
