You can see the blacksmith, the miller, the beekeeper and the woodworker at work in the various departments of the museum.
Free "smithing" demonstration
At one time, the blacksmith was truly indispensable. He made, repaired and maintained all iron tools, household utensils and other essential items. The blacksmith will show you the properties of iron and tell you how you work with iron.
In front of the smithy we have set up a shoeing stock, which is used by the farrier on special occasions to shoe draught horses. If you want to be kept informed about these occasions, subscribe to our newsletter (Dutch speaking)!
Free "grain milling" demonstration
The MOT’s own miller takes you on a tour of the fascinating world of this 17th century water-powered grain mill. He explains the history and working of the mill, and shows how the power of water sets the huge mechanism in motion.
You are sure to be wonderstruck!
