Askø Museum

The museum contains a wide collection of printed local history material and photos from Askø and Lilleø, which together tell the story of the hard life on the two small islands with about 200 inhabitants.

Askø Museum is a small island museum focusing on local history from the two small connected islands Askø and Lilleø. The museum is located as part of the vicarage and primarily contains a physical collection of working and agricultural tools from around 1850-1950.

Agriculture and fishing were the main source of income at the time, but the repeated storm floods made it a harsh and impoverished existence.

The museum's website also contains a wide range of digital writings and photos from the history of the islands.

It's possible to visit the museum outside of normal opening hours by prior arrangement. The museum's opening hours can be found on the website.
