Ferrum Museum & MUAR

Tétange

Local industrial history - the Schungfabrik

The building now known as the Schungfabrik was constructed between 1912 and 1917. For 50 years, it was the Hubert family's shoe factory, before the company went bankrupt in 1966. In 1980, the local authority acquired the building and began developing it into a cultural centre, which was inaugurated in 1990.

To make more room for a museum, an extension is built and inaugurated in 2021. This extension now hosts the Ferrum museum, made of two main parts:

Musée Ferrum - Permanent exhibition

A permanent exhibition on the subjects of local and industrial history of the Käldall gives fascinating impressions of the evolution and development of the entire valley.

The chronological arrangement of the museum’s exhibits guides through the history of the Käldall, starting in the Middle Ages. It takes visitors through the rise of the steel industry on a local level, highlights working conditions, the story of several local industries, but also the social and societal life of the valley’s residents. All those impressions are captured in the form of photographs, texts, historic maps and a variety of videos.

MUAR - Museum without walls

The Espace Kirscht, an exhibition space, hosts temporary exhibitions on different topics, all centered around work. Recent exhibitions have been “Unfree Labor”, questioning the principle that everybody has the RIGHT to work, as well as “Working Class Heroes”, putting a focus on the living and working conditions of the local working class of the 20th century. The MUAR – Musée vun der Aarbecht – is a museum without walls, without a real physical limit. Here, it’s more about the concept of work and everything it entails.

Kabutz for kids

Both the Ferrum and MUAR museums are also a fun and educational experience for children and especially school classes. In addition to child-friendly explanations by the museum’s mascot Kabutz, an illustrated carbide lamp, there’s a large offer of educational workshops making the topic of work and everything related understandable and fun for children.
