This fascinating museum follows the evolution of man’s relationship with the metal iron right from the Iron Age to the twentieth century. This covers mining, ore enrichment, alloys, the creation of blast furnaces and the industrial revolution.

  • For a materials engineer as me this is an awesome place. Anyway, if you’re curious about the iron industry history and how Alsace and Lorraine got a so vital importance for the development of France, Germany, Luxembourg and neighborhood countries take a look at this place.

  • If you are British and visiting Nancy with a background in architecture and engineering this museum is a must to visit. Excellent.

  • Musée bien organisé, riche en informations et en objets. L'exposition sur la tour Eiffel est très instructive, les enfants apprécieront. Après la visite, grand parc situé juste derrière pour une promenade entre les arbres

  • La Lorraine a été l'une des grandes régions sidérurgiques de France avant un catastrophique déclin. Consacrer un musée à ce bout d'histoire glorieux est donc tout à fait justifié. On y trouve les utilisations du fer dans l'industrie et l'automobile, bien sûr, mais aussi dans des ouvrages plus artistiques. Le tout est très bien présenté et la visite est un vrai plaisir, un peu inattendu, bien moins austère qu'on pourrait l'imaginer. C'est carrément passionnant.
