The Mother Factory – the Ravne Ironworks exhibition is set up in the swaging forge of the former Ravne Ironworks and tells a story about a steel company with a centuries-old tradition which bloomed after World War II and with it the town and region as well. Innovation and creativity of its workers made the company one of the best steelworks in the country and one of the first in Europe to introduce computer-controlled production and successfully market stainless steel and various products. Visitors can experience a special place called “When Steel Speaks”, where they can learn about steel as a primary element of the factory and express themselves, their impressions and thoughts by using different artistic ways of expression (sound, symbols, movement, etc.). A special feature of the museum set-up are small magnets with symbols which direct child’s attention and promote sensory observation and symbolic perception. (summarised from: kpm.si)
