I have not been there for more than 20 years and what I remember best is the peaceful surroundings: the white houses with their black wood, the large lawns and the tall white birches by the lazy river. Serene and still peaceful. We spent quite som time in their arts exhibition, which changes every year. We also spent time (and money) in their various shops, had a waffle break at the Tranen cafeteria by the waterfall, and walked down from there to the other side of the river. From where we had to walk all the way up again as the float to take us over the river is far too heavy for three persons in their 60s to pull to the other side. Some info about that would have been nice! All in all a wonderful day on one of the probably last summer days this year.

This tour is for adults and was held by a very knowledgeable guide. I brought two grandsons, aged 7 and 12. The older boy very much enjoyed all the information and learnt a lot. The younger also enjoyed the tour but found some facts difficult to understand. We all really enjoyed the swing bridge over one of the mine shafts and also standing on the thrilling glass platform!! I also recommend the children's tour for younger children and will bring the 7 year old on that one later. The tour for an adult costs NOK 195. The children cost NOK 120 each. Money well spent!

I recommend visiting this to everyone. Such an incredible history. Visiting mines, the ability to see what did with bare hands - stuck in my head. Tours available in Norvegian and English. Our guide was very pleasant and keen on answering questions of the group. Mines are surrounded by beautiful nature. There is also museum and cafe with great food. I highly recommend visiting this place.

Went on the 12 o'clock tour and it was cloudy and wet when we went in, wearing ponchos and hard hats It was cold inside but the poncho kept me warm. The hard hat protected my head on a couple of occasions and served it's purpose. The tour takes one and a half hourh and was great.. Very interesting and enjoyable. Really recommend it. Afterwards it was sunny and warm and we thawed out with cold beer and waffles... A great way to spend a few hours

My wife and I went for a visit at Blaafarvevaerket (The Cobolt Works) on a sunny Sunday. My GPS could not find the roadname Koboltveien, but we found anyway how to go to Åmot in Buskerud and from there it was just to follow the signs to Blaafarveværket. This is a really nice place to visit whether you are spending a long time here, or shorter time. There are a lot of things to see and experience. We really enjoyed the Art Exhibition. We had a good, short walk up to the water fall before we entered The Blue Shop where we found nice blue glass articles to buy with us home, and The Glass-pavilion and Wheelhouse was quite interesting. We had a quick lunch bought from Kroa, the Café's home made food, and we enjoyed it outside on a table by the river. We had a very good time here at The Cobalt Works. It is more to see and we will come back. PS. There is as well a children's farm with animals, close by the main parking places.
