The Workshops

Enjoy a close encounter with good craftsmanship and manual work. From the 1880s bookbinder, where everything is still done by hand, to the early-20th-century clog workshop and the light ale brewery from Hornsyld and Østerby, where there’s a good deal more mechanisation. We then arrive at the 1920s machine shop, where machines are operated by gas engines and belt drives.

Many of the old industrial crafts will be brought to life by the museum’s team of volunteers before the tour ends in our fragrant tobacco factory from 1990.
