History

Historical exposition of mining and metallurgy in Liptov (gold mining at Magurka, Kriváň and in Bocianska Valley, iron sources in The Low Tatras and their use, accumulation of stibnite - antimonite in Dúbravska and Kľačianska Valley, „Liptovské maše and hámre“ in 18th and 19th century).
In 1792 people of Liptovský Hrádok built „hámor“ a place for cuprite processing and a furnace called Maša. Cuprite and cuprite sheets were transported by rafts down the river Váh. Iron ore was weighed in „vážnica“ and processed in furnace.About 70 experts, coming from Germany, who belonged to the group of royal workmen and had their uniforms and good pay, processed the iron. Consequently, as the iron they produced was of a good quality, a factory for gun, carbine and pistole production was built in the area, (in 1804 and 1805). with yearly production of 24 thousand of high quality arms.
