Museums and exhibitions

Learn something new at one of our museums. Explore new art or meet the local people at our pleasant summer events.Museum Vestfyn has several exhibitions in Assens. For example, visit Ernsts Samling to learn about the fascinating story of Frederik Ernst and his collection of silverware, porcelain and antiques. In the old customs house by the harbour you will find the exhibition People and the Harbour on the historical importance of the harbour for both town and its surrounding areas. At the Hørvævsmuseum (flax-weaving) museum of industry, the guides explain about the machinery and the textiles, and demonstrate how to work with flax. Assens Miniby shows the market town in miniature and, if cars are your thing, the Škoda Museum and Strøjer Samlingen (the Strøjer collection) are worth visiting. The flax-weaving museum and the Škoda Museum are housed in buildings that belong to the Krengerup Gods estate, with Krengerup manor at the heart of one of Denmark’s bestpreserved late 18th-century manor house environments.
