Anders Zorn was living in a time of transition between the old peasant society and the industrial society. He was concerned about the new changes and old traditions beginning to disappear. In 1914 he began the construction of an open air museum near lake Siljan to preserve the old timber architecture for the future.
Zorn Gammelgård consists of more than 40 log buildings, grouped in a village, a hemfäbod, a kvarntun, a summer pasture and some boathouses. Here the visitors can get a glimse of life for the old peasants in Dalarna. Zorns Gammelgård contains an outstanding collection of historic timber buildings, many of which date from the Middle Age.
In The Textile Museum fine examples of textiles from Mora and the perishes around lake Siljan are displayed.
