Description

Orkla Industry Museum is responsible for preservation of the technical historical monuments in Orkdal and Meldal, and is also responsible for enhancing the sights and for presenting industrial and working-class history in an informative and exciting manner.

 The Museum operates the Thamshavnbanen railway - the world's oldest railway running on alternating current - and The Old Mine, where visitors can see how mining was carried out in the 1600s and 1700s. Moreover, we have displays at the Løkken Verk information centre showing mining and railway operations.

 Groups can dine in The Old Mine or enjoy a meal on board Thamshavnbanen's fully licensed railway cars. A number of concerts are also held in Gammelgruva each year.
