Vester Palsgaard Skovmuseum

Vester Palsgaard Skovmuseum is located inside the Palsgaard Forest and near Hærvejen and Mainroad A13. The Jutland Ridge Museum of Local History has now moved into Vester Palsgaard – a 200-year old manor house. 

Amazing finds in Boest
In the spring 2015, archaeologists from "Museum Midtjylland" did som very special finds near Nr. Snede. A site from the early bronze age (1800 - 1600 BC) revealed very valuable axes and goldrings, which have now been handed over to the National Museum as treasure troves.

Forestry and Local History
The museum is housed in the former Forest Supervisor’s residence and presents a fine collection from the Nørre Snede region, including textiles, toys and pictures. Vester Palsgaard Skovmuseum offers forestry and local history, nature information centre, local archive and tourist information office.

Great Hiking Area
Vester Palsgaard Skovmuseum presents local culture and history from ancient times to the present day, with the emphasis on the history of the woods. Visitors can also take a walk in Palsgaard Forest, which contains a network of signposted trails. The forests are endowed with traces of ancient cultures such as burial mounds, wheel tracks and milestones. 

At the museum, you can buy coffee and cake in the small café. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food. The museum also houses a small tourist information, so here you can easily find inspiration to your stay in the area.
