Samsø Museumsgård

Museumsgården shows a wealthy skipper farm from approx. 1850. It was built in 1917 as a replica of an old Nordby farm.
The original thatched roof was replaced in 1928 with a tiled roof because of fire hazard. The farmhouse is equipped with an interior from approx. 1850 and shows a fairly wealthy environment characterized by earthenware and textiles brought to Samsø by the seafarers.

In the large living room you find a small exhibition of Kellinghusen faience and examples of typical accessories to the local folk costume from the 19th and 18th century. The original barn now holds a prehistoric exhibition. The exhibition displays the island’s prehistory through many thousand years, from the unique axe made of reindeer antlers from approx. 9,000 years BC up until the Middle Ages, where the island was a royal estate.

Throughout the summer many different activities takes place in the courtyard and garden, such as weaving. You can also expericence folk music and evenings with singing.
