    Mining Museum

    by Sjalen Written Aug 27, 2004

    OK, so there is nothing in English here, but it only costs ten crowns to get in as the little barn museum is run by the local heritage society. This means that the person working will know a bit about the museum anyway and can tell you.

    Utö mines

    by Sjalen Written Aug 27, 2004

    Sweden's oldest mines from the 14th century, they are today water filled and quite a dramatical sight. You can easily imagine a workers' life here.
