Local name: Wira Bruk
Wira Bruk is a historic smithy and mill established in the 1730s. On the basis of a royal privilege, until the mid-19th century most swords of the Swedish army were forged here. The forge operated until 1948. Currently, its restored interior houses a museum, restaurant and café.
The museum is open in the spring and summer season. They can be visited independently or with a guide. In the former inspector's house, built in 1793, there is also a shop with items forged in the forge. The store is open all year round.
Since 1985, the complex has been hosting a cyclical event known as the Wiraspelen. About a hundred actors take part in it and it is one of the largest live musicals in the country. The performances are mainly devoted to the history of Wira Bruk.
