FE Iron 27 January - 27 May 2018 2nd Floor Galleries

This exhibition will look at the iron founding history of the area and its impact on the wider world. It will look at the links and connections across the area, demonstrating how the foundries impacted the local economy and communities and brought iron from Falkirk to the World. It will explore the people of the foundries alongside the external influences that drove both the good and the bad times in the industry.

In the early 19th century, Scotland came to dominate the cast iron industry in Britain and this area was key to Scotland's iron story. It is a tale of innovation, design, beauty, empire, war, prosperity and decline, and offers a fascinating insight into the role of Falkirk in the wider story of man and metal.
