    I had high expectations for this museum having heard many positive reviews. It did not live up to my expectations. In addition, poorly ventilated, and hot.

    Offers always on good exhibitions with good variation. Free since 1990. located in a beautiful area.

    Not at all what we imagined. Free entry is certainly positive. Had thought it more would focus on work in Norrköping. Were disappointed.

  • Museum with emphasis on interactivity. There are seven floors but oddly, most of them were for offices or similar non-visitor activities - at least when I visited - and were thus closed off. Exhibits are mostly about work and working class in Sweden and leans heavily on the industrial history of Norrköping. Bottom floor is host to a surprisingly cozy café and a weird gift store filled with all kinds of touristy knick-knacks where most of them bear little or no relevance to the theme of the museum but are instead just random "nice" baubles and trinkets.
  • The Work Museum in Norrköping is a hidden gem. You really must go if you are visiting town. They have several floors of exhibits where you can get a clear and engaging perspective on Swedish history and design.
  • Must visit if in town. Good exhibits focused on the industrial past of the city. Free entry, great views from Upper floors. The cafe is decent, but there's a better selection of those just a block away.
  • Great place to learn about work in the past and how our world is changing.
  • Nice place with fantastic views
