  • 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
