Going on at Hammarbacken


This summer season you can learn about the Pikku-Pässi locomotive in our Dear Passengers exhibition in the museum main building. Pikku Pässi and the narrow gauge steam train track will also be presented on guided tours by the historical Ironworks Villagers starting 24th of June. On the museum area you can follow the ironworks villagers in their daily chores. Don’t be surprised to smell freshly baked bread outside the Baker’s Cottage or carded wool or hear villagers gossiping! In the foundry, Kalle and his apprentices take care of their daily routines and manufacture tin soldiers for sale. In the garden you can enjoy a cup of fresh coffee and home baked cinnamon buns served by Café Hammarbacken. If you are lucky, you can even hear the cheerful widow playing her accordion on the attic of the Slaggbyggnaden (the attic of the Museum Office). She loves to entertain guests with her music! In the garden of Slaggbyggnaden sheep have been let out to graze.
