The Hall exhibits various items of artistic cast iron, products from Zlatoust steel, bronze sculptures, and pewter dishes. Among the exhibition's samples are also those related to the history of Russian cannon factories: models of guns, cannonballs, shells, and metalworking equipment.

The collection of metal products traces back to the 18th century, but most of the additions took place in the 1820s-1840s.

The exhibition's focus is on a steel palm tree forged from a railroad rail in 1895 for the Art and Industrial Exhibition in Nizhny Novgorod.
