The idea of designing the collection in the form of an unusual museum-coffee shop in steampunk style arose after about 20 years of collecting old instruments (since the late 90s). In total, the collection contains more than 300 items from the late 18th – early 20th centuries, including measuring, drilling, and locksmith tools and scientific and geodetic instruments. The concept of the collection is “The Tool as an Art Form”; that is, the aesthetic side of the objects is more important than the technical side and the selection of the exhibits focuses on the beauty of the ancient instruments and their external attractiveness.
It took about two years to reconstruct the premises and manufacture all the furniture in their own workshop. All interior items and equipment were made in steampunk style and thanks to this, the location is clearly individual and unusual and has earned high ratings from visitors.
The museum operates in the mode of a museum-coffee shop. According to individual requests, for students and groups of visitors up to 15 people, thematic tours are held on various topics with an overview of the “steam age” of the 19th century and its formation and impact on the subsequent development of society.
