The Fanø Museum – a skipper’s home on Fanø

Welcome to the Fanø Museum

The Fanø Museum, a house from the late 1600s, shows a typical home of an ordinary but modest fanø family in the years 1885 to 1920.

The Fanø Museum is an experience for everyone who wants to get an impression of an important part of the history that has created the culture of Fanø. Here, it is not the shipping industry itself that is the focus, but the life of a home where men and sons were often traveling long distances in the world seas.

We welcome you to a great experience
