The Workshops

You may follow the industrial work through time in the workshops: From the book bindery in the 1880s, where much is still made by hand, via the gradual mechanisation in the clogs shop from the beginning of the 20th century, to the machine shop of the 1920s, where gas engines and belt drives operate the machines. Several of the old industrial crafts are revived when the museum's many volunteers are manning them. The blacksmith is heating the metal in the forge, or the smith veterans work in the workshop, the printers are occupied at the letterpress printer, the artists are maintaining their lithography skills, and the electronics engineers are repairing radios like in the 1960s.
