Visit us

Forsviks Bruk is a museum where you can visit exhibitions and some days even see a master blacksmith at work in the smithy. The old foundry is now an exciting stage for theatre and music.

Forsviks Bruk has a history spanning 600 years and is part of the Swedish industrial cradle. The exhibitions show a selection of the thousands of moulds that have been preserved from the works – an invaluable time document for the future! 

Go on a journey of discovery with our knowledgeable guides in the historic works! It is an ideal place, too, for a picnic with a beautiful view over Lake Viken when your legs get tired. If you need refreshment, Kafé Ada serves coffee and cakes in the old miller's house.

In collaboration with various associations, we organise events, courses and programmes in forging and casting, among other things.
