The Gunpowder Works Museum in Frederiksværk

The Gunpowder Works Museum is an exciting attraction for both adults and children. The gunpowder mills are lined up in the beautiful landscape along the canal that runs through Frederiksværk town.

The gunpowder mills are unique in their kind. They lie like pearls on a string along both sides of the canal.

An industrial monument of international standard. The small open-air museum is one of the worlds best-preserved Gunpowder Mills with buildings and working machines from the 18th century.

Several old black powder mills with matching workshops are preserved together with a working watermill, all with original drums, machines and tools.

Here, in more than a dozen well-restored buildings, you can see the old machines working - some powered by water wheels, others by electric motors.
