The building was erected in 1878 on the city’s public land and the town’s main school until the new school (now Samsø Free School) was built in 1916. Then it served as a preparatory school until 1965.

In a room in the same building is an exhibition about Nordby’s history and a fine model of the old city. Here it is possible to get acquainted with the history of the great old village.

The exhibition is open from sunrise to sunset during the summer.
