The Danish bellmuseum
Take a walk in the past
In the Bell Museum you can try out the bells and listen to the story of the Danish bell traditions, and about table bells, animal bells, carillons and bells used on the road. You are allowed to touch the exhibited items, you can take photographs, and there is movement everywhere in the old cog wheels.
Among the upper class you'll find the bell on a table; it is used for making the manor's staff perform their duties, eat their food and assemble when they are to be addressed by their master or the lady of the house. The bell is part of the equipment of a sledge, and it is indispensible to the railway at the crossings. Later it is used on bicycles and trams. The milkman uses a bell to attract customers' attention and so does the lorry that drives around your neighbourhood with ice cream for sale.
The entry ticket also gives access to the School Museum next door, for an extra fee of 20 DKK.
The museum can arrange guided tours for larger ground outside the normal opening hours. Please contact the museum by phone or e-mail.
