About people and machines

Discover more in five discovery stations full of historical films, impressive machines and exciting trivia. Discover the Mule Jenny spinning machine - smuggled to the continent in the 18th century by Lieven Bauwens - and the Twine Mill, the Museum of Industry’s prized pieces.
