Before the visit

Verket is an empirical museum and an exciting meeting place filled with unique experiences and impressions. Here you as a visitor meet an exciting mix of history, art, science, ICT (Information Communication Technology) and the media. The work welcomes interactive experiences of industrial history and various exhibitions, such as Avesta Art, and activities that focus on future learning.
Most are housed in the three largest halls: Rostugnshall, Masugnshall and Martinugnshall. Our total visitor environment is more than 5000 sqm, distributed on several different floors and floors, with lift to all. In addition, there is Corneliussalen with the center for Creative Learning.

Verket is an antiquarian preserved industrial environment from its business hours. Some parts are custom but most are in original condition.
This means that every visitor must be careful and consider the following:

    • Uneven floor surfaces
    • Steep stairs
    • Dark lighting
    • Cooling, moisture and ice coverings

    To avoid accidents, everyone must be informed before the visit about the risks that exist. We think it is important that everyone feels welcome and safe in the work, so that the visit will be a pleasant and inspiring educational experience.

Take the classroom into Verket - or vice versa!
A school visit to Verket can be different from time to time, and create different impressions and memories. You can book a view of the work and the historical part, or of the current exhibition that is going on.

The empathy environment - Verket!
Among blast furnaces and martinverk, school classes are offered guided tours where, with presence and technical magic, we follow the iron's path from ore to steel.

Creative learning
The Corneliussalen offers ready-made learning environments, which have been built in the work to be a hub of the pedagogical development of the municipality, where one wants to benefit from Verkets inspiring environment for developing students' learning. The purpose is to put their creative ability in the foreground and to awaken the desire to learn.
