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 18th century and how did a small painted wooden horse become a symbol for all of Sweden?
These are some of the questions that are answered during this viewing through the museum’s most popular exhibitions. We tell about the people, the craftsmanship and the forward-looking spirit that have characterized Dalarna throughout history and are reflected in our days.
