“Memories from Dalarna”
During June, July, and August, we offer public tours of “Memories from Dalarna”. Price: 95 SEK per person
Why is there a statue of Selma Lagerlöf in the middle of Falun? How did farmers imagine a crocodile in the 18th century, and how did a small painted wooden horse become a symbol for the whole of Sweden? These are some of the questions answered during this tour through the museum’s most popular exhibitions. We delve into the people, craftsmanship, and forward-thinking spirit that have shaped Dalarna throughout history and continue to influence our days.
Dressed in Dalarna
Dalarna boasts over forty different parish-specific costumes. Some of these costumes span over four hundred years of clothing and fashion development, resulting in an entire wardrobe of attire for various celebrations and seasonal use. Other costumes were created during the 20th century and have been worn as traditional attire for specific occasions. The use of costumes in Dalarna has always been fascinating, expressing identity, pride, community, and above all, craftsmanship.
Lush kurbits motivs from Dalarna painters in Leksand and Rättvik are probably familiar. But how did Rättvik painters decorate the homes of their prominent clients, the large farmers in Hälsingland? What do we know about how the rural population painted in southern Dalarna – and what’s the story with Falun’s many, often overlooked, painters? Come and learn more about the diversity of Dalarna’s interior painting, its materials, expressions, and dissemination. Perhaps Dalarna painting is more than you thought!
At the museum, Selma Lagerlöf’s study from her Falun villa has been reconstructed. We can provide tours with various approaches to the successful author’s life. Choose the theme that best suits your group’s interests.
AB Albin Hagström started manufacturing accordions in 1931, but it was the guitars that made the name Hagström known worldwide. The tour provides a brief version of the story of the small family business in Älvdalen that conquered the music world. A success story of music and popular culture, but also about entrepreneurship, industry, and production.
