A piece of industrial history
Klevfos Cellulose & Paper Mill is a piece of industrial history from the time when wood processing was our largest export industry. The fabric Mill was founded at Ådalsbruk, Løten municipality, approx. 15 km east of Hamar, in 1888.
Today, the old industrial environment by Svartelva (The Black River) in Løten plays an important role in documenting the cellulose and paper production. The factory stands as it did in 1976, the tours take you through the various departments, and you can follow the process from timber to finished paper.
The museum has a large open area with dam facilities and channels. There are benches, picnic tables and playground equipment for the children. In the nearby area, there are good options for hiking. You can also make your own paper by hand.
The museum is located in the same area as the Munch Center. Edvard Munch was born at Engelaug østre at Ådalsbruk, in 1863, near by Klevfos. Munch spent a lot of time here as a child when he visited Engelaug. Inside the center you will learn about Munch's childhood and his relationship with Løten, and you can see more of his early drawings from the area.
