European Route of Industrial Heritage Anchor Point

/media/about/library/logo_2_erih_member_right.jpgThe Museum  is now an Anchor Point on the   European Route of Industrial Heritage.

The ERIH are  the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe.   The route system is a signpost to Europe's industrial heritage. Where was the world's first factory? Where was the largest steam engine built? And where can you find the most up-to-date colliery of its time?

Industrialisation changed the face of Europe. Consequently it has left us a rich industrial heritage. A gigantic network of sites spread all over Europe. It only has to be brought back to life -which is what the European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH) is doing.

It is a great honour that we have been signposted as an anchor point as these points are selected due to being a site  of exceptional historical importance in terms of industrial heritage, which also offer a high quality visitor experience. They are the milestones of European Industrial Heritage. Acceptance as an Anchor Point - which is reserved to ERIH members - is a seal of quality and it offers visitors the promise of an enjoyable and interesting visit. 

I want to go there!   Find out more about the list of Anchor Points
