High up on the hill Södra berget in Norrtälje you will find an interesting piece of history – the old factory Pythagoras, now a museum. Once hot bulb engines were manufactured here and sold to every corner of the world.


The whole family will enjoy this!

Still today, the factory is in more or less original shape and is kept open for visitors as a living museum telling the stories about people and their machines, about the world as it was in the early 20th century. When you step into the workshop you take a step back into the past.

Here is food for all the senses. You can also step into the old factory office and visit the worker’s home with its small kitchen garden. Temporary exhibitions provide further background information about the history of the hot bulb factory. On a guided tour you can still smell the engine oil and get the feeling of what it was like to live and work in a factory. You can experience a hot bulb engine running and listen to the lathes and mills as the are driven by transmission belts up in the ceiling. You may also walk around the museum in your own pace and listen to an audio guide.

Our museum is not only for adults. We have a children's area where children can learn about inventions and mechanical principles through play. They can put on small working smocks and stamp their cards in a time clock like the workers of old. The backyard has room for more vigorous play.

The old forge is today a charming café - a place to enjoy the atmosphere with a nice cup of coffee, have a light meal or take a look at the souvenir shop.
