“Homestead and industrial history”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The museum in Molndal is situated at top of the waterfalls there several different industries eas built along the river. There is a typical homestead history exhibition of the neigbourhood since the eldr stoneadge until today. At the elderstonadge the ground was lower and there was sea between islands of todays hills and rocks. The more interesting part is the insdustrial period. There was a papermill, several mills (of cereals), looms and olifactory (first linnen oil, later rape, that grow to an chemical industry). Later another papermill was started downstreams the waterfalls. Early electronic industry (Ericson) is also shown here. The most fascinating is a knitting maschine making gloves. It is still working and the needles are moving so fast, that you don´t se them, unless the maschine is stopped. After the museum I suggest a walk from the backside the museum, down the steep slope through the old industrial village along the waterfalls. At the end of the waterfalls there is the old town square at the right side of the waterfalls, with som restaurants and a cafeteria. The is also a cafeteria in the museum.
