Glud Museum - an open-air museum that brings history to life

Glud Museum is an open air museum where you can experience 350 years of village history. Here you can explore a four-winged half-timbered farm, small fishing houses and places where crofters used to live as well as other buildings. The museum tells you about life in the small village societies from 1600 up to around 1950.

The Old Farms

Each historic building tells its own history. Enter the farmhouse of Rasmus Thomasøn from 1662 and peek into the dim rooms with alcoves, fireplaces and long tables all squashed in together. See mattresses stuffed with seaweed and fishing nets hanging in the rooms of the small fishing house and experience the wonderous revolution of electricity in the tall transformer tower.

Hildesheim

In 1912, Glud Museum was founded by the local painter, Søren Knudsen. The museum also includes Søren Knudsen’s home, Hildesheim, where you can read about the history of the museum and get a look in to the rather different life of the founder of the museum.

The Forgotten Things History

In the large exhibition hall, stories are waiting to be revealed about childbirths, the fire brigade and the many chores of everyday life. Here you can see postal carriages, slaughter slabs, alderman sticks and birthing pots – objects that once played an important part in society, but which now are nearly forgotten.

Life in the Village

During the year there are a lot of exciting events. Older breeds of domestic animals take over the museum on “Animal Day”, the harvest is bought in on “Harvest and Market Day” and old Christmas traditions are celebrated when we celebrate “Christmas in the Village”.
