The blacksmith's trade has long traditions in Geilo. Today's industry has grown from the earlier farm and regional smiths. Brusletto & Co was established in 1896 and in 1946 began Geilo Jernvarnefabrikk with cutlery.
Today, knives, axes and tools from Geilo are exported worldwide. The knife and tool factories have shops where products may be purchased.
The smithy houses a museum that portrays Geilo's iron industry development through 2,000 years. Groups can order in advance a storytelling theatre - "From coal-burning pits to robots" with instructive and humorous insights into the history of production from its beginning to today.
This is a farmyard with old buildings from the 18th and 19th century in the centre of Geilo. A very pleasant place to visit with an outdoor café and various activities.
