Uppsala Industriminnesförening

DISCOVER THE HISTORY AND HERITAGE OF THE INDUSTRIAL CITY

 
 

For over a century, from the late 1860s to the 1970s, Uppsala was not only a center of learning, but also an extremely active center of industry. Uppsala's industrial heritage is not a well-known subject since most people associate Uppsala with the academic world rather than the industrial one.

Uppsala Industriminnesförening (Uppsala Industrial Heritage Association) has been working hard to bring this practically forgotten piece of cultural heritage to the forefront. It was the railroad, liquor and entrepreneurs, together with a new social class – the blue-collar workers – who stood behind the industrialization of Uppsala in the late 1800s.

The association works primarily with its large exhibition in a permanent venue on Salagatan. They also work with theater, seminars, tours in the footsteps of industrialization, theme nights and lectures on the industrial companies once found in Uppsala.
