Creating synergy between collection and cultural landscape

Øm Monastery Museum
Skanderborg, Denmark 2018
Heritage Museum

The ruin of the Øm Monastery is located in a magnificent natural setting overlooking Mossø lake. The Øm Monastery Museum consists of a ruin forming a part of a unique cultural landscape created by the monks together with a collection of skeletons and artefacts from the monastery.

Our outset is the significance of the site, carefully placing a museum in the landscape which will give more back to the place than it takes. A museum envisioned as a complex that enhances the story of the monastery and offers experiences in nature.   

Galmstrup Ltd. is selected to develop the strategy, program and design for a new museum and park in close dialogue with Skanderborg Museum and Skanderborg Municipality.
