Godthaab Hammerværk Museum

The Museum, Godthaab Hammerværk (Godthaab iron mill) is a rare example of a former Danish industrial company. The Zinck family produced tools and utensils at Godthaab Hammerværk for 5 generations from 1858 to 1985. 

The products are still sold, but now as a part of Fiskars assortment. The listed buildings hold the original shop with restored machinery, which were all driven by waterpower.  

The machinery is still running 
A permanent exhibition shows various tools and instruments that have been produced at the iron mill along with a display of the original machines - all driven on water power. All machines have been restored and are still functioning and working when the museum is open.

The museum café offers refreshments in the opening hours.
