The Katsimantis Dyeworks building houses the Museum permanent and temporary exhibitions. It is located on the south side of Hermoupolis, on George Papandreou street, next to Heroon square.
The building houses the only lead shot factory of its kind salvaged in Europe. Since August 2010, when it opened its doors to the public, visitors have the opportunity to empirically experience the conditions and the way in which lead shot was produced in the beginning of the previous century.
The tannery main building has already been restored, while completion of all necessary work has been incorporated into the National Strategic Reference Framework. Once all work is carried out, the industrial building is going to house a state-of-the-art cultural complex and multi-purpose venue.
The factory building houses the Industrial Museum Restoration and Maintenance Workshop for Machinery and Tools, which is unique in Greece.
