The casting of various metals into moulds represented one of the cornerstones for the development of simple societes into advanced civilizations. At our museum you can view some highlights from the development of one of the most complex crafts in the world, which has been in existence for several thousand years.
Metal casting is one of the world's oldest crafts yet also still a current activity. Metal casting first appeared in the 7th century BC, when the earliest bronze castings were made.
In the distant past the activity of metal casting was used primarily for military purposes in the production of weapons. Today this activity has been redirected to creating works of art and items for everyday use. Metal casting today is associated with fields such as architecture, sculpture, and model-making. Casting tehnology has advanced to the point that today skilled metal workers make products such as antique fittings, handles, statues, and decorative objects. Casting used to be done using sand moulds but today many others techniques are used.
