Description

This museum is a guide to Sweden's history of electric power, the forest industry, and the evolving mining industry. The biggest attraction is the country's largest preserved steam engine, which is on display in the machinery hall. Other famous attractions are the Discover-Investigate-Experience section, Teknorama (supposedly for children, but more enjoyed by adults), a 5000-year-old drill, and Galileo's telescope. The telecommunications museum next door can help explain how they function. The exhibitions thoroughly cover telegraphy, telephony, radio and television. Also, if you lost the phone number of an old friend, here's your chance to find it; there is a complete series of all Swedish telephone directories.
