Exhibitions at Møntergården

At Møntergården, there is a series of outstanding exhibitions for children and adults to enjoy. Møntergården is open all year. We focus on the history of Odense and Funen and narrate the events, explain about the artefacts and tell the life histories of people who made their mark on our heritage and identity. Discover everything from skeletons buried in Funen soil, swords and strange food products to familiar inventions, famous personalities and knick-knacks made in Odense.

Creative exhibition design, sound, video, interactive experiences and sensory happenings form the framework of a varied collection of exhibitions.
