Museum of Iron
The Basque Museum of Iron, which is part of the Route of the Ironworks, will explain the relationship between man, the environment and ironwork in the pre-industrial age from a Basque point of view. The Basque Museum of Iron will be the gateway to the Route of the Ironworks. The Basque Museum of Iron looks at iron from several different points of view: technological, historical, scientific, economic, industrial, social, landscape, etc.. The project considers, on the one hand, what the conquest of iron meant for humanity and, on the other hand, what the launch of this industry meant for the Basque Country. The Museum offers several keys to understanding the past based on innovative approaches with regard to the conception of knowledge and the application of new technologies in the transmission of this knowledge, simultaneously applying different exhibition resources.
