Interesting museum that tells, not only the story about the city of Norrköping, since the Industrial age, but also, some interactive parts for kids, about the jobs for the future, recycling and waste. Free admission!

I visited the museum but it is not worth to visit. Waste of time. During the visit hours some repairmen working also.

It's in the industrial part of the city, or at least really close to it, and it's one of the best-looking attractions. I didn't have time to check much of the exhibits but the outside area really looks nice.

Arranged a workshop here, already from booking there was a good feeling. On arrival we were making changes in number of participants and requirements of group rooms, no problems! Staff is really service minded, lunch was really good, over all well worth the money.
