Museum of Artistic Casting

  ul. Bojkowska 37 ,   No District          (+48) 32 335 44 03     25 Feb 2019
This branch of the Gliwice Museum presents iron and bronze artistic castings in the 19th century Royal Prussian Cast Iron Foundry where they were made. An extremely modern plant with one of the first coke furnaces in Europe when opened in 1796, the Gliwice foundry was the only in Germany to continue to modernise and stay in operation until WWII. Occupying only two public rooms, the collection of miniature castings lacks a stunner, with most of the foundry's work still standing in public squares around PL and Germany. As such, it'll give you a glimpse of regional monument art and a visualisation of the casting process via a short film on the matter, but little else as all info is in Polish. Best reserved for those with a special interest in the subject, read this description, imagine a candleholder, now imagine a large bust of Chopin, there you have it. 5zł saved.
