Interesting place for all who likes metals, history, iron forging art pieces. Tourist guide helped me, explained all about iron forging technology, history through this kind of job. Museum is small, inside is nice, but outside is damaged (no maintenance at all on walls). Next to the museum is mountain river, you have 2-3 nice restaurants near museum.
Kropa is a very interesting village and you can discover tons of interesting facts about it's history in the Iron forging museum. You can get the map of the village here too.
