Here you will learn the tale about a way of making iron that was new a thousand years ago – and that is still up to date. Did you know that in those days when Sweden became a state the iron from the Bergslagen region was essential?
This is what our story is about, but also about so much more. About the people that did the work and their every day life. About their technical know how and their skills, about raw materials and final products. About iron as a Swedish export product and about the politics of peasant iron makers, nobilities and kings.
Here you find the smells, sounds and sights from the making of iron conveyed to you by our exhibitions and our guides. If you come here during the weeks we produce iron you can both experience it and be part of the work.
For the children and others with a childlike mind there is the interesting Children’s Mine, which you can visit, equipped with a helmet and a torch.
