Holstebro Museum

The museum is temporarily closed due to remodeling!

Holstebro Museum expects to be able to open the new exhibitions in the autumn of 2019. Until then, the staff can be taken to the address Danmarksgade 14, 1st and 2nd floor on usual telephone numbers and email addresses.

The cultural-historical museum in Holstebro tells Denmark's history in Western Jutland.

When the museum reopens, it is with 14 exhibitions - 14 stories that you can explore yourself. All the stories are linked to Holstebro. The exhibitions make you wiser about the connections between the West Jutland and the world. For example, one of the exhibits is about the early Stone Age in the area and in a larger perspective.

The Adventurous Loft is the name of the new permanent exhibition. Here you are surprised and challenged by the impressive collage. The museum offers sensual experiences, and you can interact both analogously and digitally. At the same time, there is also room for the traditional museum experience, where you can immerse yourself in the topics.

An important part of Holstebro's local history is about trade, tobacco industry and iron foundry. These topics also immerse themselves in the museum. An entire room is dedicated to the iron foundry's factory history dating back to 1862 in Holstebro. Here, 11 people tell the story, and you can hear sounds from the factory, which were you in the middle of everyday life at the factory. In this way, the industry's past and present are communicated to the museum.

Holstebro Museum has thematic special exhibitions, which can be seen in two years. The exhibits' topics go across the time. It can e.g. Be faithful over time from the oldest to the present. The museum guest is confronted with whether he / she believes. Thus, historical issues become current and take part in the debate.

In addition to the exhibition rooms, the museum houses a rest room, where you can rest your legs (after visiting the 2x625 sqm!), And when large and small have been exploring the history, the Museums Café offers delights.
