The history of mining and metallurgy

Siemianowice Śląskie


The exhibition is located in Park Tradycji and dedicated to mining and steel industry in Siemianowice Śląskie. It is divided into two parts. The first part introduces the industrial history of the city whereas the second concentrates on the stories of miners and steelworkers. 

Despite limited space it was possible to gather and show numerous exhibits and souvenirs. Large historic photographs form the background of the exhibition. The unique showpieces include: an original board from the Innocenti rolling mill from the “Jedność” steel plant and keys to the shaft “Krystyn” located outside the Park. Used materials, such as black fibreboards, steel ropes and screws, underline the industrial character of the exposition. Stories of miners and steelworkers who actually worked in the plants in Siemianowice add to the authenticity of the presentation and make the history of industry in the city easier to approach and understand.
