Overview

Ornasstugan is a large medieval timber guesthouse built in the beginning of the 16th Century. It was built by a wealthty man who was part owner of the Falu copper mine. Ornasstugan is the second oldest museum in Sweden, estblished in the 1750s to commemorate the dramatic visit of a young nobleman, Gustav Vasa, who was on the run from the Danish king. Gustav decided to come to Dalarna to seek help to assemble a resistance army to try to wrest control from the Danish who were in power of Sweden. The owner of Ornas promised to help and allowed Gustav to sleep in the guesthouse. However, the owner was more interested in the reward money offered for Gustav´s capture. Gustav had to escape and did so with help from the wife of Ornas, through the toilet. Gustav Vasa would later become the first king of an independent Sweden. The stories of his adventures in Dalarna in 1520 have been told at Ornasstugan for 500 years. Next to the museum is a tasty café and wounderful view of the lake Runn.

This is apparently the second oldest museum in Sweden! The old king Gustav Vasa stayed here one night (before he was king) back in the 16th century! Historic place indeed and a good guided tour!

This building is located on a great place with a great view. It plays a interesting part in the Swedish history and you got a couple of great stories behind it. The coming Swedish king was hidden in the closet while the angry Danish Kings...More
