If you haven't noticed already, Katowice, and Silesia as a whole, is big on industrial tourism. If this is where your interests lie, then 'Walcownia Cynku' (Zinc Metallurgy Museum) will be right up your street! Originally opened in 1904 near Huta Bernhard (Bernhard Steelworks), the Zinc rolling mill hall (91x20m) and the engine Room (70x6m) functioned right up until 2002! The interior is filled with the majority of original machinery, so walking around, you have an opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the place. The main function of Walcownia is a museum, which event contains a collection of American motorcycles, however, it also hosts cultural and corporate events, and for any budding photographers and filmographers, it can even be used as a backdrop for your next shoot! To get there, take trams 14, 15 & 20 to Szopienice Roździenska stop, from where it is only a 5 min walk away.
