The Gunpowder Works Museum in Frederiksværk

Take a walk in the past

The gunpowder mills are unique in their kind. They lie like pearls on a string along both sides of the canal.

An industrial monument of international standard. The small open-air museum is one of the worlds best-preserved Gunpowder Mills with buildings and working machines from the 18th century.

Several old black powder mills with matching workshops are preserved together with a working watermill, all with original drums, machines and tools.

Here, in more than a dozen well-restored buildings, you can see the old machines working - some powered by water wheels, others by electric motors.
