The Saut du Tarn museum is located in the former metallurgical factory of Saint-Juéry, a few kilometers upstream from Albi on the natural site of Saut du Sabot. Do you like industrial tourism? Come and discover this collective history written by generations of men and women who have created a new identity: the working class.

Water: a driving force for a human and industrial adventure

It is by going up the bed of the Tarn towards the Tarn Valley and its meanders, that arises the rocky chaos of Jump from shoe and its 20 meter high waterfall. The museum is located in the heart of the the plant's first hydroelectric plant Saut du Tarn, in a building listed as a Historic Monument. Former workers from the metallurgical plant created this space in 1995 which retraces the industrial epic of the site in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries. The Saut du Tarn factory called la Fabrique is one of the few companies in France to have experimented with most steelmaking techniques. Its products, known under the brands TALABOT and SDT, have achieved worldwide fame.
