In the middle of Taberg creek valley, almost in the shadow of the hill that gave forge iron to the many hammermills, you can today find an industrial museum that illustrates this interesting history.

The museum is accessible at floor one and two. Elevator available.
   On the first floor you will find the reception and the exhibition that illustrates the industrial epoch and on floor two the exhibition that shows the primitive iron handling.

   The industrial epoch is illustrated by a number of objects and equipments from various earlier industrial activities in the Taberg valley and around Barnarp.
   A large part of the exhibition also shows the social life during the building of society, with housing, trade etc.
   An extensive amount material, such as texts and photos, supplement the exhibition and visitors can take part in the history of the Taberg valley by themselves.

The production of iron has a long history in the Taberg valley. Finds of small blast furnaces shows that iron was produced from red earth and marsch ore as early as in the Viking age.
   Ore mining in Taberg dates back to the end of the 1400's and in 1618 the Swedish King Gustav II Adolf issued privileges for
Tabergs Bergslag.
   Ore from Taberg was used at some 20 blast furnaces around the area and played an importent part in the economical development in the hole province.
   With our exhibition Primitive Ironhandling we want to show production from red earth to iron and rockore to pig-iron.
