Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum

Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum and Archive is a local initiative that offers insight into country life and local heritage with exhibitions on agriculture, crafts, community life and home décor. The permanent exhibitions let you experience country life from 1840-1950 and include agricultural tools, craft tools and cooking utensils from a bygone age.

Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum features displays of furnished rooms and handiwork traditions such as yarn spinning, lacemaking and embroidery.

2013 was a landmark year.
In the autumn of 2012, Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum became the caretaker of a local heritage collection that had previously been featured in the basement at the Smidstrup School with former school headmaster S. Ellkier-Pedersen as curator. It had long been a wish that the Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum acquired the collection, which currently holds approx. 2,000 items, many of which are unique, such as a panel painting from 1844 depicting a wedding parade through Håstrup, a rare pump making workshop from approx. 1860, a shoemaker’s workshop and 200-year-old household items and furnishings.

The exhibitions in 2015
The exhibitions at the Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum in 2015 will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. There will also be an exhibition highlighting the centenary of women's suffrage.

Smidstrup Local Heritage Museum and Archive is a local initiative and does not receive public funding. Admission is free. However, donations are welcome.
