Visit Iföverkens Industrimuseum a summer day. Here are you can see both industrial design, history and garden design in the same exhibition, and enthusiastic guides will show you around.

The museum shows the development of the industry for 100 years and explains how the raw material of the neighborhood is used to create fireproof brick for example crematory ovens, alembics for gas works and cement. The development went on to produce high voltage insulators for the electrification of Sweden from the 1920s and onward. Tiles and fuses have been big products. During the 30's the production of sanitary ware started, which today is the most important product. Most Swedes have probably seen a bathroom fittings from the factory and in the exhibition a selection of the products manufactured in different eras is on display . Of course you can see the first toilet seat and a water closet that in the late 1900s was very popular in England preserved in the museum. Adjacent to the museum is also a ceramic workshop where artists work in collaboration with the museum to animate parts of the historic production process. Another exciting section of the museum is that of the fire service that started in 1905 after a fire in the factory. As many as 22 men were in the department and the fire engine was pulled by a horse. Externally the industrial museum is enclosed by a beautiful garden consisting of three parts. In the east, a Nordic part , in the middle is a Chinese and around the barge a Japanese garden.
