Most of the tools in the smithy is from the beginning of nineteen hundred. The forge is from about 1930 and has belonged to Martin Dybro, who orignally was a blacksmith in Southern Bindslev. Later - in his old days - he moved to the town of Bindslev, where he founded a little smithy at the adress, which to day is Western Bridge 7b.

After the death of Martin Dybro his son, Aksel Dybro took over the workshop, from where he ran a plumbing and heating service, untill he builded a new one at ParkRoad 3 - a concern, which developed to a direct form of a factory.
The forge is given to the museum by Aksel Dybro.

To be a blacksmith has from the oldest time been included with a great deal of respect. For a long time the blacksmith was regarded as a "wice man", a form of a "magician", who was a crucial factor for the implements in the agricultural society and later the function of the machinery.

There have been something inexplicable and mysterious about the always black man, who stood in his low, dark and a little gloomy smithy with frequently the lighting forge as nearly the only source of light changing a bar or a plate to small wonders. And so it had been all time back from the prehistoric and long into the last century - yes nearly, it is still so!
