Dala horses

A Swedish symbol

Everyone loves the Dala horse.

At the world exhibition in New York in 1939, a very large red decorated Dala horse was placed in front of the entrance to the Swedish pavilion and thus a regional souvenir was elevated to a national symbol!

As it should be, the Dalarna Museum probably has the world's largest collection of Dala horses, in all its forms. In this exhibition, we show a large and mixed selection of them, from the oldest to today's free interpretations of the Dala horse phenomenon.
