About Kirkely

The Skarrild-Karstoft Museum and Local Archives are located in the small house Kirkely on Hovedgaden.

Kirkely was built in 1844/-45, reportedly by Pastor Christiansen.

Inside the low but cozy rooms, one of them is set up as a memorial room for 7 Allied airmen who were shot down in their Lancaster bomber on 27 August 1944. The 7 crew members who died are buried in the cemetery. The museum also has a collection of local historical documents.

Genealogical research and archive work

A whole chapter by itself is what the archive manager, Verner Nørgaard Andersen (1930-2006), had registered in his computer system over the years. It concerns a genealogy register of around 13,000 names of people from Skarrild and the surrounding area.

Opening hours: Sunday from 14.00 to 16.00, or by appointment.
Closed December 20 to January 31.
For visits outside opening hours, please call +45 24 82 53 16 / +45 29 68 37 60.
