Grimeton Academy

It is 1942 and station manager Hans Palmqvist has started a training program aimed at strengthening the station’s defensive capabilities. As a volunteer, you undergo basic training to ensure the station’s competences in signals intelligence, espionage and physical capabilities. In the special training program, you are put through various tests; do you have what it takes to defend our radio station and the country? After completing the training, you receive a certificate of suitability. Together we stand ready!
The training program includes five tasks, divided into basic training and special training. The three activities in the basic training, Interception, The Examination and The Sabotage, are included in the entrance fee. Separate tickets are required for the special training.

Practical information

In the Visitor Center, you receive a mission folder containing the basic training when you pay the entrance fee or show your pre-purchased ticket. Once you have completed your training, each assignment is ticked off and you receive a photo as proof that you are now a member of the Grimeton Academy. Exercise Hawk Eye and Operation Palmqvist are additional activities that require separate tickets.

The Examination puts your physical skills to the test. In three stages, you test your sight, strength and balance. The mast workers have been taking such tests at Grimeton since the 1920s. In addition to the three task stations, the obstacle course also contains other exciting elements that encourage free play and knowledge usage.

Accessibility

The obstacle course is built in such a way that children of all physical abilities can play and learn on it. From the Visitor Center, a pathway that is suitable for wheelchairs and strollers leads down to the obstacle course. The baking table has been set at a height that suits everyone and there is an opening in the palisade of the sand pit for e.g. wheelchairs. One of the wooden houses has a ramp for wheelchairs. Can you decipher the secret Morse code on the wooden houses?
