Have you ever heard of a building with seven corners? This is one, built on an island. The museum is very interesting even for a non-swede. We had an englishspeaking guide to accompany us and explain what we didn't undertstand and the museum is free of charge! Nice area with the river surrounding us.

If you plan to visit Nörrköping, it is recommended to visit the Work Museum in the city center near the river. There you can find many historical issues about Swedish factories.

Not rating the museum itself but the restaurant on the top floor. For students like my friends and I this lunch was a good deal (with student prices) as it involved a help-yourself buffet of nice healthy things with a lot of variety. It worked out cheaper eating a decent lunch there and not having much for dinner than having a sandwich in one of the student union bars both for lunch and dinner. I would recommend this place if you are on a budget (it's not actually cheap, it's just cheaper than eating smaller things in various bars around the university if you can handle having one big meal a day!)

Today I went to Arbetets Museum. A beautiful house standing in the middle of Norrköping river that was built some 200 years ago. The Museum is big ( 6000 sq meters ) 7 floors ,and are full of interactions, movie, exhibitions,music, history of the swedish worker way back in time when factory workers had a hard time etc. There was also one exhibition that was really cult with typical things from the 50´s,60´s, 70´s, 80´s and so on.
I like museums where I can push buttons, feel, listen and be part of it. Not just look at things in a glass cupboard.
Some things explained only in swedish...
