Ærø Museum

Explore Ærøskøbing's beautiful old bailiff's house from 1775 and learn more about Ærø's unique history.

Ærø Museum tells about life on Ærø, past and present - and every year there are special exhibitions related to the island.

Along the way, you'll gain insight into a number of key themes in the island's history - from Ærø as part of the Duchy of Schleswig before the defeat at Dybbøl in 1864, to wedding tourism today. You'll also learn why the islanders boil eggs on the beach on Easter Saturday and the history behind the island's two local flags.

Adjacent to the museum you'll find a market garden with plants and trees that show what a garden looked like around 1920. Don't miss a trip to the garden when you visit the museum.

Activities for children

The museum's exhibitions are also child-friendly and there are plenty of artefacts to pique children's curiosity.

There is also a free cat treasure hunt with Storm the house cat for children aged 4-8 years and their adults.
