The museum is housed in a private residence from 1924.
The Museum shows a number of impressive prehistoric finds from the Thy area. The history of the market town of Thisted has been captured at around 1850, showing many aspects of daily life in the town. The more recent history of life in the country is depicted through a series of period interiors.
In addition, the museum accommodates memorial exhibitions for the Folk High School pioneer, Christen Kold, and the author J.P. Jacobsen. We also have alternating special exhibitions.
