Doktorsgården was the home of the founder of Silvermuseet (the Silver museum), dr Einar Wallquist. He moved to Arjeplog in the early 1920’s to serve as a doctor and ended up buying this house close to his newly built clinic.
This classic, red and white building became his home for the rest of his life. Dr Wallquist gave his home a personal touch and the atmosphere still tells us that this was the home of someone creative with a talent for creating a snug home for himself and his family.
Every summer Silvermuseet offers guided tours of Doktorsgården. They will tell you about the life’s work of dr Wallquist, which also included artistry and authorship and an extensive commitment to the cultural history of Arjeplog.
