    Who Knew?

    I couldn't believe how much we enjoyed visiting the Match Museum. I found the history and technology fascinating and the exhibits were well laid out. Opened my eyes to just how much worldwide commerce was happening in the 19th century.

    Jönköping has the only match museum in the world. After a meal, take a stroll to the museum, which was a match production factory in the past. The building itself is quite unique.

    I wasn't particularly keen to find out in the match/matchbox industry. But the exhibits show an interesting part of Jönköping's history. The area of the exhibits wasn't large. Hence, it was not hard for a relaxing walk through the museum.

    There was no entrance fee in Nov/Dec. Hence we were blessed in that sense. :)
