Nice presentation of history of Dala horse

Located in downtown Falun, this is a free museum of multiple rooms and floors that presents the history of the Dala horse and has many displays to view. Sits on the river.

A good collection of Swedish traditional textile and the Dalahorses, but a bit more information about the horse itself could be added perhaps. More captions in English would be nice as well.

A great textile and painting collection housed in a small, well curated space in the center of town. We enjoyed the guitar exhibition too and were happy we stopped by after our pilgrimage to Carl Larsson Gardens.

There is a pay parking lot (30SEK for 2 hours) right across the street from the museum. If you need more that 2 hours, and you well might, it is easy to go back and pay for more time.

And Free! A complete collection from pre-historic artifacts to art collections, and the most interesting to me, the Dalarna horses! The museum is very central; go there and learn a bit about the region!

The Print Arts Hall has a collection of the Falun Engravers prints that are a must-see for any print art lover.. The history of the region is well-represented. A favorite exhibit was a collection of Dalarnas horses that were sliced up and wrapped up like deli meat.

Mostly interesting exhibits, one finds clues to the county's many cultural expressions. Within reach are freshly baked pastries and a well stocked museum shop.

Exhibitions of Local Art, Local costumes, the regional history and many other things. Good restaurant, but the museum shop is a bit poor. Worth visiting, also very skilled staff.

A lot of local folk art and history. Very interesting exhibits, but would have been improved with summary descriptions etc', in English. We had less than 30 minutes and you need at least 2 hours to see it in any detail
