The Iron and Steel Museum appears well funded and the exhibits are well displayed and well explained. It also bills itself as a railway museum with some excellent models and a good presentation describing how Vallorbe developed.
There are a large number of working waterwheels and the thumps from the associated belts and machinery could be felt throughout the museum.
The most interesting part of the museum was the demonstration by a working blacksmith who was making nails.
