Museum Thy
The story of Thy – from the Stone Age to surfing culture

The objects' stories and modern forms of communication
At Thisted Museum you can get closer to the good stories about Thy - the many years and the great lines - and about the area's contacts with the wider world from the first Stone Age people to today's entrepreneurial culture. The museum opened in the summer of 2023 in completely new, beautiful surroundings and with updated information. At this "Thyboernes Nationalmuseum" you can visit seven permanent exhibitions, where the focus is on the objects' stories about life in this area. In the Gravhøjen exhibition, which is about Thy's rich bronze age, you can meet the Kaller Fund, which, among other things, consists of a unique ceremonial axe; a find that is on a par with the sun chariot and gives us an insight into a past religion. You can also see interesting objects that came to the area in the Viking Age as a result of trade or robbery, and you can get up close to a rune stone and practice writing with runes. But it's not just about Thy in the very old days, because you can follow the story right up to our own time. Who are the Thybos really? Some have lived here for many generations, while others have moved here with a surfboard under their arm and a dream of what Thy is or can become. In the museum's attic you can experience history at a child's level and play through what you have seen in the exhibitions. Follow up FacebookTwitter
