Some parts were a simple idiocy, some were very informative. There is a section devoted to Selma Lagerlöf which could have been better. One can learn a bit about Dalarna - its history and development. A small part is dedicated to musical instruments, namely guitars....More

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.

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.
