Overview
Details

The Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum at Vemork is a museum where you can see the unique exhibition from 2.ww. as well as the industrial revolution in Rjukan.

The Rjukan Waterfall (Rjukanfossen) provided the basis for building the world's largest power station of the time at Vemork in 1911.

The power station is now a museum, Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum where you can learn about the fantastic adventure of its founding and see exhibitions on industrial development in Norway and especially in Rjukan.

Presentation of Rjukan as a UNESCO site

Rjukan is on UNESCOs world heritage list due to our unique industrial history. An insight into the story is presented here at Norwegian Industrial Workers Museum.

The heavy water war
The museum is perhaps best known for its presentation of Rjukan's exciting war history.

Vemork was at the centre of one of the most important acts of sabotage committed during the Second World War, when Norwegian saboteurs prevented the Germans from developing a nuclear bomb from the heavy water that was produced there. 

You can watch a documentary called "If Hitler had the bomb" in the cinema, which is about the acts of sabotage committed during the quest to destroy the heavy water plant.
