Station: [01] Hermannn Gruson

  • Technikmuseum Magdeburg

Welcome to the Magdeburg Museum of Technology.  Thank you for your visit.  The Museum of Technology is located in the former armor and iron foundry of Hermann Gruson.  Here in the exhibit portion of the museum, tank armor plates and other military technologies were produced.  The memorial statue in front of you is of Hermann Gruson himself, who founded the largest mechanical engineering company in Magdeburg.  His success was achieved by creating a hard casting alloy, which increased in strength of his equipment.  The metals that were coated with this alloy were called “Gruson’s metal”.
To begin your tour, follow the footsteps to your right, and enjoy your visit.
