The main attraction of this museum is undoubtedly, the copy of the 1000 year old Mammen find, which includes axes, decorations and two fur cloaks, excavated a century ago from what is presumably the grave of a Viking chief. You can also see photographs of the clothing in which the body was buried, a reconstruction of the clothing can be seen in the National museum in Copenhagen for a brief period.

Other exhibits include wooden well sides from the same excavation. The collection at the museum actually covers a wide number of periods, but with a particular emphasis on farming and the community at the turn of the 20th century.

Guided tours can be arranged.
