The museum ties the knots (pun intended) of the tale of Mølleåen ("The Mill Creek") and the industrial revolution sweeping across Denmark, powered by watermills. The museum should not be left alone, but you should treat yourself to a trip along Mølleåen, to see the...More

I can't say enough about the Brede Works museum! The entire property is exceptionally educational and gives a great insight into Danish culture and society. One day is not enough to visit. When combined with the Frilandsmuseut (Open Air Museum) the two attractions are worth...More
