The KraftLaben science center is part of the museum Kraftmuseet. In Norway nearly all electricity is produced from waterpower. You can see how this works and try it out at KraftLaben.


Try making electricity with the same methods they used in the over 100 years old historical powerstation in Tyssedal.


At KraftLaben you can sharpen your brain with Pythagoras theorem, puzzles and lots of other scientific phenomena.

In the science park you will find many exciting installations to try out: Balancing on a line, try to make a ’Million’, make a ball of stone roll on water or whisper secrets in the speech boot.


Play, learn or see the science shows in the former laboratory on the site of the old carbide factory - WELCOME!


Open during school holidays, summer season or on request.
