Industrial history museum
Welcome to the place who built Sweden!
EXPERIENCE - for real
The ironwork in Avesta is an industrial heritage of national interest. It is an unusually complete ironworks, even in an international perspective. Here is today the museum Verket where film, sound and technology in a playful way make yesterday's reality tangible and visitors can follow the iron ore's path to iron and steel.
Different historical hike
In the martin furnaces, pig iron and scrap iron are melted during oxygen supply. During the process, additional substances were added which affected the properties of the iron. The product you received was called steel ingot.
Permanent art in Verket
There are a number of fixed works of art and installations in Verket. They are available in various shapes, designs and materials, such as glass sculptures, paintings, built-up rooms, etc. Most have come in place through an Avesta Art year, and have remained there after. Others have found home in the suggestive premises in a different way. All installations are in one way or another completely integrated into the environment.
