Royal weapons, world championship motorcycles and many, many more products from Husqvarna’s 326-year history are here. You can stroll around for hours here in memory lane and feel the pulse of history.
A museum full of nostalgia! You can follow technology, quality and diversity over 300 years of development at one of the world’s oldest and most multifaceted industrial companies.
It began in 1689 with muskets and other weapons for the Swedish armed forces. Then came sewing machines in 1872, followed by cookers and a multitude of other cast iron articles. Production continued with bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles, and further with forest and garden products such as chain saws and lawn mowers.
The industrial museum opened on April 27, 1993, and it contains the building that until the 1940s was the weapons workshop. On March 14, 2005, there was a new dedication of the museum, which had been expanded to today’s 2,400 square metres, with a new entrance and foyer adapted for the disabled as well as new exhibition rooms.
In the entrance hall there is a shop and a café.
