Warehouse and local archives

Museum collection

The exhibitions at Ringkøbing Fjord Museer are just the tip of the iceberg. In our three warehouses - two in Skjern and one in Ringkøbing - we store thousands of objects, all telling the story of West Jutland's distant and not so distant history.

The objects are tucked away under lock and key in dark, climate-controlled storage rooms. But they are all waiting for their turn to be included in exhibitions, articles, research projects, lectures, school service events and much more. And they are waiting for you. If there is something you would like to take a closer look at, or if you would like to know what Ringkøbing Fjord Museer has in the way of material on the particular subject that interests you, visit the collections department in Skjern.
