A visit in Norrtalje, the capitol of the archipelago in Stockholm, should include a visit at Pythagoras. The engine factory opened in 1898 and remained "as-was" until production stopped in 1979 and turned into a museum.

Went there on "Pythagoras Day" in the end of the summer, when all of the engine were running. Unforgetable!
