For schools

Tumba Paper Mill Museum offers school tours, where we talk about what it was like to live and work at the mill, and about the history of banknotes. We also demonstrate how paper is made by hand. Our school tours are only offered in Swedish, but you and your school class are very welcome to visit the museum on your own. 

Visiting on your own 

You and your school class are welcome to visit our exhibitions and the mill grounds during the museum's regular opening hours. Visiting on your own is free of charge. To avoid crowding, please let us know in advance of your planned visit.
