Frequently asked questions
What is the Tumba Paper Mill Museum?
Swedish banknote paper has been produced here since 1755. At the museum, you can learn about Sweden's banknote history, and about the people who lived and worked at Tumba Paper Mill. Paper is at the heart of the museum's activities and also plays a big role in our children's parties.
What is included in the party?
At the start of the party, the children are invited to make masks and try their hand at making their own paper. The craft session is led by museum staff and at least one parent (but no more than three) may stay as well. We do a mix of paper crafts and the children make their own paper. We mail the finished sheets of paper to the children once they have dried, giving them a fun memento of the party.
After the crafts, it is time for refreshments, with a Smakis drink box, a baked good and ice cream. Before the party, we decorate the room with streamers and garlands. The party host from the museum serves the refreshments and makes sure that the birthday child is celebrated with a birthday song. Each child gets a goody bag with something tasty to take home.
How much does a party cost?
The price for a party with us is SEK 2,750. Up to 12 children can attend, including the birthday child. The price includes crafts, a Smakis drink box, a baked good, ice cream and a goody bag for each child. Adults are offered coffee and buns. We must be notified of any special dietary needs at least one week in advance. Hot dogs (2 per child) or waffles with berry compote and whipped cream (one per child) can be ordered as an add-on for SEK 45 per party-goer. Do you have questions about dietary preferences or allergies? If you have any questions about allergies and the café's menu, please speak to our kitchen staff or contact us in advance via the booking form.
What age can the children be?
It is recommended for ages 6 and up, but our experience has shown that the craft party is best suited for children aged 8 to 11. Naturally, we adapt the crafts to the age of the children.
How long does the party last?
The party lasts about two hours.

Where does the party take place?
The Tumba Paper Mill Museum is a unique and cosy venue for children's parties. We do our crafts in the Röda magasinet building and eat in our restaurant and café (Brukscaféet). Both buildings are accessible for wheelchairs and prams. There are changing tables and a potty seat in the guest toilets of both buildings.
How many people can I invite?
The party can have a maximum of 12 children (including the birthday child and any siblings). At least one parent (but no more than three) may stay at the party to help and support the children. Adults of party guests can drop off and pick up children at the museum entrance.
How do you get to the museum?
It is easy to get to the Tumba Paper Mill Museum by public transport, car, bicycle or on foot. We have a large parking lot, where you can park for free for 4 hours with a parking disc. There is also bicycle parking at the museum entrance.
There are no fixed times for parties. You can see which dates and times are available by filling in a booking request. We will then contact you to confirm things and discuss the best possible arrangements.
