History, culture and exciting events

Sorø Museum

At Sorø Museum you can dive into what is special about Sorø. The museum is located in Christian IV's inn - one of the city's oldest buildings, built 1624-25.

You are always welcome to spend time in the museum's courtyard or our Pharmacy Garden. The unique pharmacy garden is located behind the museum and contains plants from Joachim Burser's (1583-1639) herbarium. Burser was a famous German botanist and doctor who settled in Sorø. The pharmacy garden is laid out according to the geometry of the Renaissance.

The museum is open all year.

In the museum shop you can buy copies of old toys, books, postcards and handicrafts. We also sell coffee and cake, which you can enjoy in Christian the IV's inn.

In the packed lunch garden, you can eat brought food all year round. The garden room is open from May to October.

Permanent exhibitions

Ingemann and the golden age. Interior exhibition with furniture from the author BS Ingeman's home in Sorø. Without Lucie and Bernhard Severin Ingemann, Sorø would not have meant the same for the Danish golden age. Their home brought together many cultural personalities. 

Experience The clunkers, where you get an insight into the design of the better bourgeoisie around the year 1900. The clunky time was marked by many technical advances, but in the homes they shielded themselves in an uncertain world and decorated with decorations with decorations on. 

The creatures of darkness. A children's exhibition in a farmhouse, where you can see and investigate various superstitious phenomena and see what was done to avert accidents.

The time travel in Sorø is a 13,5 meter long man-high frieze illustrated by Erik Petri. In a simple line, Petri manages to tell Sorø's story in a way that appeals broadly to both children and adults.
