Life and work in the iron and steel industry

Welcome to the steel hall, the heart of DASA. It's home to our giant exhibit, the electric arc furnace, which was used to turn scrap into steel. You can also discover our rolling mill which was used to flatten steel that was then used to create objects like tram tracks, for example. Those who aren’t afraid of putting their ears to the test can pay a visit to the noise tunnel, while those who think they can stand the heat can head to the fire safety zone.
