The exhibition is housed in two pavilions by the Canal in the dock area between the Borenshults lock and Motala guest harbour on the Vättern.
The exhibition, THE PEOPLE AND THE TECHNOLOGY, in one pavilion is about the origins of the Canal. Why was the Göta Canal built? Find out about the people who made it possible to construct the Canal and the technology they used. These people include Baltzar von Platen, Thomas Telford and the brothers, John and Nils Ericsson.
And in the other pavilion, you can visit an exhibition about THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE CANAL, with constructed scenes showing, for example, the Canal diggers at work. Find out how the diggers lived when they were building the Canal and what the interior of a lock keeper's cottage looked like. Experience enhanced by smell and sound.
