Dalarna Museum

Falun, Sweden

The exhibition shows the industrial heritage of Falun and the province of Dalarna. People from Dalarna have had to be creative to provide for themselves in a harsh environment. A variety of industries, including the copper mine in Falun, suited to the natural resources of the area, have developed and dominated the Dalarna landscape for over a thousand years.

The gallery features craftwork and industrial products from the region, art inspired by the industrial landscape and reconstructed rooms. Historical and contemporary film shows the industrial processes which influenced the Dalarna we see today. See how the historic trading centre of Falun has become a modern town from our first floor viewing gallery.

Came here to learn about the history and culture of the Dalarna area. Was disappointed to see half the museum dedicated to modern art that had nothing to do with the place such as the space age and Albert Einstein. At least the other half was about the horses and cloth patterns of Darlarna.

Historic Site of the week

Château des Ducs de Bretagne

The Château des ducs de Bretagne (Castle of the Dukes of Brittany) is a large castle located in Nantes. It served as the centre of the historical province of Brittany until its separation in 1941. It was the residence of the Dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, subsequently becoming the Breton residence of the French Monarchy. Today the castle houses the Nantes History Museum.

The restored edifice now includes the new Nantes History Museum, installed in 32 of the castle rooms. The museum presents more than 850 objects of collection with the aid of multimedia devices. The castle and the museum try to offer a modern vision of the heritage by presenting the past, the present and the future of the city. Night-time illuminations at the castle further reinforce the revival of the site. The 500-metre round walk on the fortified ramparts provides views not just of the castle buildings and courtyards but also of the town.
