Museum of Flynderupgard (Flynderupgard Museet) Tours and Activities
Found in a stately, whitewashed 19th-century country manor south of Helsingør (‘Elsinore’ in English), the Museum of Flynderupgard (Flynderupgard Museet) charts the changing way of life in Denmark’s rural North Zealand.
Inside the main house a variety of exhibitions depict the lives of local farmers and fishermen and there are several reconstructions including an old grocery store and a typical rural worker’s room in the 19th century. Often-changing temporary exhibitions showcase all aspects of rural life in the region.
In the side wing of the manor is a permanent exhibition of traditional fishing methods and a reconstructed fisherman’s cottage from the 1800s. The museum’s restaurant serves up traditional Danish recipes and comes highly recommended.
Set in rolling countryside adjoining the Egebæksvang Forest, the house is surrounded by gardens that have been refashioned to reflect their appearance in the 1920s; a small park showcases the cute animal sculptures of Danish stonemason Karl Otto Johansen. A hobby farm practicing historic farming methods has been re-established on the estate, using old farm machinery pulled by heavy horses.
A visit to Flynderupgard can easily be combined with discovering the spectacular contemporary art at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, 15 minutes to the south.
