We could not see anything inside since between October and May the place is closed. The surroundings (lake, garden, old houses) looked fine enough, though. It was fun seeing it, but this is definitely a summer time attraction. Do not bother coming in April.

Nice to go on a guided tour in this painter's house but in general overrated I would say. The Zorn house in Mora I find much more interesting! Unfortunately you are not allowed to take photos inside.

The house is maintened like it was when the painter lived. The beautiful garden and all the property still belong to the family that keep them in good way. It is a pleasure to walk through, to have a coffe (or something else) in the coffee shop and to buy something in the shop.

We were booked into and English speaking tour by friends in the neighbourhood: Holger, our guide, turned out to Carl Larson's great great grandson. The tour was excellent and the house/studios were really interesting. For non Swedes so context around his portfolio of output would have been great: it was not restricted in any way and guests feel the 'full... More

Carl Larsson's house is more or less untouched and you recognise the interiors and exteriors from the famous pictures. Unfortunately the family - who still owns the place - had decided to use half of the house for private use the day we were there, so we only got to see a fraction of the house, but we were charged...

When you visit this painters home you can also tour his garden. Very quiet and quaint place. Enjoyed the visit to his home as well. Short drive outside of Falun.

Excellent museum with display of art, textiles and way of life. Firstly had a tour with an English speaking guide then to another building where it was a self directed tour but explanation in both Swedish and English.
