Anholt Museum

Anholt Museum is a small historical museum in the centre of the island of Anholt. Here, a world of history and culture opens up, inviting you on a journey through time and life in the middle of the Kattegat.

The history of Anholt

Anholt Museum presents the rich history of the island, from the Viking Age to the present day. The exhibitions give a vivid insight into life on Anholt over the centuries. From dramatic sea battles and pirate raids to fishing and lighthouse keeping, here's the whole story of how life has unfolded on this unique island.

A treasure trove of artefacts

The museum houses an impressive collection of artefacts spanning several centuries. See old navigational instruments, traditional fishing gear and personal artefacts from Anholt's former inhabitants. Each artefact tells a story and provides a fascinating insight into daily life in the past.

The light of the lighthouse

One of the highlights of the museum is the detailed exhibition about Anholt Lighthouse. This iconic lighthouse has guided seafarers through the Kattegat for over 200 years.
