FERRO NON FERRO

Everywhere you look, you can find metal. From simple paperclips to ingenious machines, from jewellery to smartphones. And even works of art! The exhibition FERRO NON FERRO will immerse you in the world of metallurgy, full of less-known stories and undervalued craftsmanship.
In FERRO NON FERRO, you’ll discover the history of this heavy industry in a playful and contemporary setting. Be amazed by crazy machines and fun objects, like a metal coke bottle mould or an impressive welding robot. The interactive exhibition is brimming with surprising facts and striking images from different periods and countries. You’ll learn all there is to know about raw materials and their scarcity, metal workers and their precision work, companies and their entrepreneurship. From Congolese copper ore to Belgian factories. From ancient mines to high-tech metal recycling plants.

DO IT YOURSELF

Roll up your sleeves and get busy in the metal workshop. Clamping, tapping, bending, measuring … You can experience the craftsmanship of the metal worker yourself!

So don’t hesitate to bring your (grand)children or teenagers to the museum. 

DEMONSTRATIONS

Every Sunday morning, experienced metalworkers give demonstrations. Each time from 10am to 1pm.
