Description

A closer look at the mining tradition

The Castile-León Steel and Ironworks Museum (MSM) recreates the life of the people in the Sabero valley who were responsible for the installation of the first iron and steel industry in Spain in the 19th century. The MSM is the ideal place to learn more about the history of mining with the whole family. 

The refurbishment of the San Blas ironworks –closed since 1866– features a modern visitor centre with a varied programme of activities for children. The younger members of the family can go round the museum guided by some of the MSM's instructive booklets, which are organised by ages and designed to transform the visit into a fun educational activity. What's more, the natural setting of the building –which originally housed the first steam engines in the province and the vast machinery imported from Great Britain– make the MSM a highly recommended stop-off for anyone visiting the province of León.
