The Eriksson Family in 1897
In the red cottage where the Eriksson family lives, time has stood still since 1897 och during the summer you are welcome to step into to the everyday life of a mine worker’s family at Falun Mine at the end of 19th century.
Even though none of the characters in the cottage know anything about our modern time they are more than happy to chat with our visitors. Feel free to ask them about their favorite recipe or anything else you are curious about! The kids can help take care of the chickens or try some games 19th century style.
The Eriksson Family in 1958
Just behind Creutz shaft head lives the second Eriksson family, relatives of those living in 1897 a few generations later.
Here you step right into the 1950s where the housewife takes care of the home and all that that entails. It smells freshly baked from the kitchen and the gramophone plays an old LP-record.
Even though none of the characters in the cottage know anything about our modern time they are more than happy to chat with our visitors about life in the 1950s. The kids can try board games and in the yard there are rabbits.
Entry to both homes is included when you buy an above ground- or underground ticket.
