A/S Kistefos Træsliperi was established by consul Anders Sveaas in 1889. The wood pulp mill produced wood pulp used in the European paper industry.
The Industrial Museum at Kistefos is a collective term for the industrial historical collection at Kistefos.
The wood pulp mill
The production at Kistefos stopped in 1955, but the buildings and machines have been preserved. Several of the machines have been set in motion once again, creating a "living factory" for Kistefos' visitors.
