Memories from Dalarna

Why is the Selma Lagerlöf statue in the middle of Falun? What did the farmers think a crocodile looked like in the 1700th century and how did a small painted wooden horse become a symbol for all of Sweden?

These are some of the questions answered during this tour through the museum's most popular exhibits.
We tell about the people, the craft and the forward-thinking spirit that has characterized Dalarna throughout history and is reflected in our days.

The viewing can be booked for groups of up to 20 people.

"Per Albin Hansson built the community center, Ingvar Kamprad furnished it and the Hagström family filled it with music."
That's how Hagström's importance to Swedish music history could be described. AB Albin Hagström began manufacturing accordions in 1931, but it was the guitars that took the Hagström name worldwide. The show gives a short version of the story of the small family business in Älvdalen that conquered the music world. A success story about music and popular culture, but also about entrepreneurship, industry and production.

Lunch Show - Mr. Fridell and Mr. Simmons

Come along to a screening and lecture about one of our greatest graphic artists, the faluson Axel Fridell. His most famous graphic magazine Mr. Simmons has become a symbol of Swedish graphics at its best. Axel Fridell was a restless soul and during his short life was often on the move. His images of cities and interiors and portraits are depicted with a sure eye and captured with a great sense of light, black and the gray scales in between.

Dalarna has over forty different parish-specific costumes. Some of the costumes span four hundred years of clothing and fashion development, which in turn has created a whole wardrobe of clothes for different festivals and seasonal uses. Other costumes have been created during the 1900th century and have been used as costumes on special occasions. The costumes of the Dalars have always fascinated and been an expression of identity, pride, community and, not least, craftsmanship.
