Guided tours

Memories from Dalarna

Why is the Selma Lagerlöf statue in the middle of Falun? Why did the valley people need their own walk-in closet? 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.

Enrich your museum visit with a guided tour.

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

Children up to the age of 17 join for free with a paying adult.

Dressed in the clothes of the Dalarna valley people for everyday life and parties

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.

With the exhibition "Dressed in Dalarna" we want to tell about the region's rich costume traditions throughout history. Talk about how the parish costumes developed and varied, the changes in society and the impact of the economy on desire and ability to adapt to new fashions and imported materials.


Selma Lagerlof

At the museum, the study from Selma Lagerlöf's faluvilla is reconstructed. We can provide screenings with many different entrances into the life of the successful author. Request the theme that suits your group best.

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

Hagström 4ever

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.

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

Dalecarian painting

Lush gourd bits from valley painters in Leksand and Rättvik are familiar to everyone. But how did Rättvik painters paint at the homes of their main customers, the big farmers in Hälsingland? What do we know about how the farming population painted in southern Dalarna - and what is the situation with Falun's many but often overlooked painters? Come and learn more about the diversity of Dalarna's interior painting,
its material, expression and dissemination. Maybe valley painting is more than you thought!

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

Visible and invisible
