Cultural history as a specialization

Dalarna Museum is the county museum in Dalarna and a place for knowledge, with cultural history as a specialization.
In the program declaration, it is stated that Dalarna Museum collects, preserves, investigates, and displays objects, stories, and knowledge about cultural environments that describe how people in Dalarna have lived, resided, utilized, and moved in the landscape. From ancient times to the present.

A visit to Dalarna Museum can be pure pleasure, evoke sublime feelings of historical awe, and create aesthetic and other inspiring experiences for the curious. Such a visit can also contribute to learning about and broadening perspectives on both today’s society and times gone by. These positive expressions ultimately benefit the well-being of both the people of Dalarna and other visitors.

It is with this fairly ambitious attitude and standpoint that Dalarna Museum looks at its activities and strives to develop them.

In concrete terms and in everyday life, this happens through exhibitions and various program activities, through archaeological work and other cultural environment efforts in the built-up Dalarna, and through the management of rich cultural historical collections.

The beautiful museum building from the early 1960s in hard-burnt brick is located in central Falun. There, the permanent exhibitions are displayed. However, you can also access knowledge in many other ways, such as through various publications, the films the museum produces, and through digital media.

A visit to Dalarna Museum’s exhibitions, whether in person or digitally, sheds light on the tension, dynamics, and connections to historical events that exist in and between the landscape’s different areas and time periods. Here in Dalarna, some of Sweden’s most tradition-bound regions and beliefs coexist with industrialized areas and modern Sweden.

You are warmly welcome to visit, whether in the museum building in Falun, around Dalarna, in texts, or online.
