Open air museum

The open air steam engine museum started to operate in 1976, thanks to the efforts of the Tarnowskie Góry Land Lovers Association. Its location refers to the history of mining in Tarnowskie Góry, which owes its dynamical development from the end of the 18th century onward mainly to the implementation of steam technology, very innovative at the time.
