The hunt for history

City walk on your own with quiz questions for the whole family. 

The city walk is suitable for a group of 2-6 people who are curious about the city's details, skewed angles and stories about people and houses. Follow the map and read the exciting stories that have been written so that everyone can understand it. At each stop on the trip, there is a quiz question that you can solve together. When the whole trip is gone and all the quiz questions are solved and the password found, there is a prize. 

The hunt for the history bag is purchased at the local museum. It costs DKK 95 and contains a workbook with map, clipboard, pencil and compass. It takes approx. an hour to walk and you choose when you want to leave.

History, culture and exciting events

Ringsted Museum

The museum is based on the uniqueness of Ringsted and tells the city's history through the ages in both permanent exhibitions and special exhibitions. In the archive you can dive into the local history or maybe find your relatives. Ringsted Windmill is next door to the museum and has the same opening hours. The mill still grinds grain on selected days - the grain is otherwise both local and organic. 

If you want to buy flour from the mill outside the museum opening hours, it is possible to call and make an appointment with Morten Møller on telephone no. 20 22 51 91.

 

The museum is open all year round and has a shop and a small café. 

You can experience that

Visit our changing exhibitions, or take a seat in the cinema corner, where we show historical films from Ringsted. See, among other things, the exhibition Ringsted - in short, which basically tells the city's history from antiquity to the present day.

You can also meet almost 2000 year old women from Kærup. They were buried together in a plank coffin approx. year 250.

The archive

Access to the archive is free. Tuesday at 11-16 we offer guidance in archive use. You are welcome to write an email to ringstedarkiv@vestmuseum.dk with your question and the information you have about the case. We respond to emails every Tuesday.

See all permanent exhibitions og special exhibitions.
