History, culture and exciting events

Skælskør City Museum

Skælskør City Museum is located in Peder Reedtz's grocery store - a bright red half-timbered building from the Renaissance. The house is named after Peder Reedtz, who was sheriff at Antvorskov Castle and owned the property in the time around 1580. From the first floor there is a beautiful view of the harbor, and from there it is easy to understand why the property was once so coveted. It was also located right in the middle of town, so it was easy to get the goods into the grocery store.

At the city museum you can learn about life in Skælskør - especially how the harbor affects life in a market town. 

In the small, old-fashioned grocery store, we sell toys, local history books, postcards and handmade brushes.

The museum is free and is open at Easter, from summer to autumn holidays and around Christmas.

You can experience that

Trade, shipping and fishing has had a great impact on the development of the city. On the first floor, we tell the story through ship models and objects that sailors have brought back to Skælskør. 

You can also go deeper into the story of sheriff Peder Reedtz and his significance for the city.

Committed, local volunteers staff the museum during opening hours and are happy to tell stories from Skælskør.

The Latin school in Gammelgade and Vejerboden on Havnevej are open when the museum is open. In the school you will find a small school exhibition, and in Vejerboden from 1919 you can see how the royal weighs the weight of weighed vehicles. 

See all exhibitions og special exhibitions.
