New Lapphyttan

Learn how iron was made 1 000 years ago – and how it can still be made today. Did you know that iron from Bergslagen was essential at the time when Sweden became an independent country?

This is about our history, but it is also so much more. It’s about the people who worked here, and about their everyday lives. About their technical expertise and skills, about raw materials and finished products. About iron as a Swedish export and about the politics of mining farmers, nobilities and kings.

Discover the smells, sounds and sights from the making of iron, presented to you through our exhibitions and guides. If you visit during the weeks when iron is actually being made, you will be able to both watch and try for yourself.

For children and those who are young at heart, there is the interesting children’s mine. Helmets and torches are a must during your visit.
