Munkfors Bruk

Munkfors is a community of great importance in the history of the Swedish iron industry. Mild steel was made there by the open hearth process for the first time in Sweden in 1868, and a building constructed in 1877 to accommodate open hearth furnaces, which worked until 1941, is preserved. The history of ironmaking in the town is portrayed in the museum, and also in a firm entitled Iron, commissioned by the Uddeholm company in 1936, which includes sequences showing the Lancashire forge process, open hearth steel-making and a rolling mill, shot in 1932.
