Experience the prisoners' way of life in Falu Prison with our guided tour and a museum visitThe prison was built between 1842 and 1848 and was commissioned in 1849 and was initially a cell prison. Cell imprisonment meant that the prisoners were all completely isolated from each other. The prisoners spent 23 hours in the cell and one hour in the prison yard, but there they were also held in complete isolation. The prison was rebuilt into a city prison In 1911, which resulted in the insulation no longer being kept as strict as before.
In order to spread knowledge about Falu Prison and the history of the Swedish Prison Service, we offer guided tours. We follow the prisoners' path from the time they were captured until they were given their punishment in the courtroom. Furthermore, we show how the prisoners lived in detention in cells and how their daily lives were lived.
