Interesting place to visit. Its a small but nice place to visit. There is a reasonable amount of English explaining the exhibits, however some are only in Swedish which was an interesting challenge. Worth a visit if you are interested in museums.

It is interesting/fascinating how they built in parts of old stone valves and parts of old buildings in to the museum. Worth a visit!
