This tells you the story of the monastery, the gunpowder factory, the ironworks, and Gustaf de Laval, and about the trade association.



The building was restored in the 1980s and converted into a working museum. In order not to disturb the architecture, the designer Sven-Olof Gudmunds drew the exhibitions on glass screens after the walls.
