"Smelthytta" (The Smeltery)

The main exhibits in "Smelthytta" show us how mining activity took place in earlier times. There is information about how the rock in the mines were heated up by fires causing the rock to crack. This was the old method used to fracture the rock and expore the copper ore. In addition, there are working models of water wheels, horse-operated hoists, as well as pumps, all of which illustrate the old mining techniques.
