  • The brothers who enhanced (they did not invent it, they did improve it though) the safety matchstick had the factory here. The information cards were in Swedish however there are files with the English and German translation that can be requested while purchasing tickets. It was insightful history information as well, for example how rampant child labour was and how the start of the industrial revolution / machinery eventually made many jobs redundant. There’s a film that you can watch that illustrates the history and evolution of the matchstick; something that was part of essential everyday life pre-electricity era.
  • Nice museum about the history of matches in Sweden and why Sweden still is global market leader. Good exhibition, friendly staff :)
