Christian IV's inn
The museum buildings are an attraction in themselves. On 13 January, 1624, Christian IV ordered the first building to be built as an inn with an adjoining butcher by Sorø Academy. These beautiful old buildings are now home to Sorø Museum.
From Stone Age to computer age
Sorø museum is a culture historical museum with a wide range of collections, presenting history from the first human in the Stone Age right through to present day. It focuses on describing the prerequisites for Sorø’s development from abbey via academy to capital of a region.
Local area – Bromme culture
The local history starts with a find of special arrow heads, which gave their name to a period in the Stone Age – the Bromme culture. Historically the museum goes up to recent times, always with a focus on what is special in our local area.
