Built in around 1859, the blacksmith’s workshop on Hlavná street in Moldava nad Bodvou near Košice is one of few workshops of its kind that have been preserved in relatively good condition. Built of stone, it incorporates an authentic double-fire forge, a wide open chimney, a smith’s workbench and various smithery tools, including tongs, drops and other manual tools and instruments, including instruments for shoeing horses. A small gallery houses period paintings and photographs of the town, along with an operating weaving loom. The back room houses a stable with agricultural machines and tools.
