School Holidays

We have activities for children accompanied by adults during each school holiday (school break). Information on what is happening at the museum will be made available a few weeks before each holiday.

Winter sports holiday

During the winter sports holiday, bring your family to the mill and help us solve a mystery! The museum's exhibitions are open all day for those who want to discover the mill's history on their own. The café is open for lunch and coffee.

The Hunt for the Counterfeiters' League

Someone is making fake bank notes at the paper mill! Follow the clues and solve the mystery together with Constable Kosing. The activity is self-led, outdoors, and in Swedish. It suits children aged 6-9, and takes approximately 45 minutes.

See our child-friendly exhibitions, or have coffee and lunch in our restaurant.

Climb aboard the fire engine

A popular family activity is to climb aboard the fire engine in the Spruthuset firehouse. Spruthuset was built in 1926 to serve as the mill's fire station. It houses fire engines, helmets and other equipment.

Discover the exhibitions

The museum has lots of exciting things for children and families to discover, both indoors and outdoors. Our exhibitions are easy to visit with children – there's plenty to see at just the right height for them. Visit the old school room or peek inside the old fire station.
