Description

The Forge Museum, also known as the ‘Forge of happiness’, is the only survivor of Ittre’s 8 forges. This authentic forge has maintained the appearance it had in 1957 when the last blacksmith ceased his activity. On the initiative of blacksmith students who wanted to try their hand at the trade, the forge resumed activity in 1999. Activities are now organised there and the blacksmith is even at work! The museum shows how the blacksmith profession has evolved through the ages. You can see the tools and equipment necessary for the work of blacksmiths and farriers.

Inspired by a Scottish custom, newlyweds can received the ‘recipe of happiness’ from the blacksmith as well as a horseshoe during a ceremony held in front of the anvil.​
