Established in 1986, the Museum of Bijou is located a few steps away from Piazza Garibaldi, in the basement of the eighteenth century “College of the Holy Cross”, a large building that also houses the “Mortara” library and the Concert Hall. This unique museum displays a specialized collection of industrial heritage consisting of more than 20,000 items, all produced in factories in Casalmaggiore between the late nineteenth century and 1970s.

The halls of the museum display machine tools, photographs and catalogs documenting the "golden age" of Casalmaggiore, a period of industrial boom unparalleled in Italy. Attached to the museum there is an educational workshop with equipment for metal smelting, welding and plating.
