    Small and very fine Museum. In addition to the technology, human fates were built very well. Some animation of the exhibited machines. And the knowledgeable staff speak even German.

    When the Swedish industry was at its best. Here you see both how the factory workers had started, how it how they mixed the small key part on the stick. What is the wood? Yes, it will tell you if you visit the Museum. Clearly worth a visit. -For a little expensive entry like jag.Ps. If you arrive by car, take a car park that offers more of a 1-hour parking, for in tändsticksområdet were only 1-hour parking. There are nice lunch places in the area for the hungry.

  • Brilliant and dark history of matches factory. But also remarkable place to discover changes in social mindset in Sweden.
  • Well maintained small museum which will tell you the history of matchbox industry in Sweden. Around 30 to 45 minutes will take to see the whole museum.
  • Small museum about the history of making matches in Jönköping. Exhibits about the people who made the matches, the manufacturing process over time and the marketing and export of matches. Exhibit text available in English and German on request. Free admission in winter.
  • Very friendly staff. Interesting museum. Took us 75 min to see everything.
  • Fascinating place on the invention and production of safety matchs, and how the industrious Swedes came to dominate the world market. Just beware .. the designated car park allows max 1 hour (the museum takes more) and wardens are ruthless!
