Archaeological and geological researches have shown that a work on the mine began between the years 850 and 1080. The first privileges, the copper mine was given from the King Magnus III in 1347. The production peak occurred around 1650. The intense breaking resulted in the great fall on 25 June 1687. A large part of the mine collapsed and formed the giant Great Pit, which is 1.6 kilometers in circumference and 95 meters deep.

The Museum displays the history of mining of Falun Mine, including the production of minerals, models of machinery, tools, and the people in the mine.
