New season at the The Mayor’s Yard

05. March 2019 |

The Museums of Eastern Funen are expanding the opening hours of the old merchant’s yard in Slotsgade (Castle Street), built by the town’s mayor, Mads Lerche, back in the 1600’s. Instead of opening at Easter, we are starting the season on March 1, and instead of opening at 11 AM, we will open earlier, namely at 10 AM.

Over the last couple of years, both the buildings and the exhibitions at the Mayor’s Yard have been renewed. The buildings have been beautifully restored so they now are as beautiful as they must have been when the complex was a rich merchant’s home and business in the Renaissance. The exhibitions have been renewed with an eye to creating teaching situations and experiences aimed at both children and adults. There are lots of things you can touch, because you have to use all your senses at Borgmestergården to understand history. Of course, there is knowledge available about life in the Renaissance that you can soak up, whether you’re a child or a grownup.
