Description

The Glass Works itself currently form the heart of Blaafarveværket Museum. This is where the annual art exhibitions are held, as well as the permanent exhibition ‘From Cobalt Ore to Blue Pigment’ in the Glass Works. The Children’s Farm is also located here, along with the Bødtker Cafés [Old Coopers’ Inns] where you can enjoy a meal, and the Mill which houses ‘The Blue Shop’ (souvenirs). In the Wheel House there is an exhibition about the history of Blaafarveværket. There is a bathing spot and a large park with tables and benches along the bank of the Simoa river, and the Tourist Information Office for Modum, Sigdal and Eggedal is also at the Works. In other words, there’s a great deal here for both children and adults!
