Initially it was an iron foundry founded by Ábrahám Ganz (born in Unter Embrach, Zurich County, Switzerland, in 1814, died in Pest, Hungary, on December 15, 1867). Chilled iron railway wheels, railway-crossing points, corn milling rolls were produced on the base of Ganz's patent. continue
Permanent exhibitions
The Ganz Ábrahám exhibition represent the documents of the founder's life: freeman certificate and rewardings. Through the reports of the contemporary media we can also look into the life of the factory. continue
The permanent exhibition represents the original appliances of the Ganz shell foundry: iron melting ovens, casting bowls, rotating cranes, shaping cupboards, hand-held tools. We can follow up the history of Hungarian moulding and learn the technical steps of modelling, melting, casting and preparing. continue
