Machine Tool Museum Foundation

The Machine Tool Museum tries to pay a tribute to those who made possible the development of the sector and aims at explaining the keys of the machine tool industry, one of the bases of the region's development.


In order to portray the history and the present time of the machine tool industry, the building recreates an industrial workshop of the 20th century with more than 60 pieces of machinery. Of these one must highlight the first universal milling machines, as well as horizontal lathes, filing machines or sensitive drills.


There is an exhibition hall that gathers over 250 photographs, medieval machinery and display cabinets with various tools and devices, as well as a machinery workshop and a forge mill.


Restoration service of old machines and rooms for rent.
