The museum has been updated several times since then and for the Winter Week 2017 we opened a special section about ”Mora-Nisse”, Vasaloppet’s greatest icon through the ages. The new museum offers visitors a wide view of Vasaloppet’s long history and through modern expression it shows the journey Vasaloppet has taken from being a cross-country race to becoming an arena for exercise and public health all year round.

The museum entrance opens with an automatic door opener and there is an elevator between floors. The lower floor has a disabled toilet.
Shoes with ice grips may not be worn in the museum.

Each exhibition offers a new experience, giving visitors a comprehensive view of Vasaloppet. The Vasaloppet Museum also shows Vasaloppet’s soon-to-be 100-year-old history in an entertaining and informative way: In the museum you can, for example, digitally browse through all Vasaloppet victors ever. Which you can also do here:
