Historical collections Farvergården - The Dyer’s Yard

The main concentration of the collections is on country and town life from about 1750 until the present time, with the richest representation from 1850 - 1950. Geographically, the country and the town are about equally represented, but due to the location of the museum, the immediate vicinity (the market town) is weighted more strongly than outlying towns and villages.

Kerteminde Museum, (its former name), was run by a volunteer association for the first 50 years, with the only employee being a caretaker / ticket seller. The museum founders were mostly concerned with preserving objects from the fast-changing way of life in agricultural and market town society. Therefore, the older collections cover mostly traditional areas like crafts and trades including their inventory of tools, etc., housekeeping, handicrafts of various types, though often lacking full descriptions. All in all, the collections consist of 8000 numbers of registered items, though sometimes one number covers several objects. The collections include: 

• Textiles

• Maps

• Town associations, focusing mostly on the guilds and a collection of their special boxes for by-laws, fines and so forth.

• Memorial information and artifacts from the poet Frederik Paludan Müller, born in Kerteminde in 1809. See also the memorial bust and plaque at Langegade 2, his birthplace.

• 31 different crafts and trades are included in the collection, with seven chosen to be displayed as permanent workshops.

• Fisheries

• Toys

• Apothecary collection

• Physicians
