Cultural heritage and management

Do you have anything for the museum?

Museum Lolland-Falster collects and preserves objects, photographs and archives that can illuminate Lolland-Falster's past and present for the future.  

If you have anything you would like to submit to the museum, please contact the museum in writing. You can either send an email to post@museumlollandfalster.dk or a letter to Museum Lolland-Falster, Frisegade 40, 4800 Nykøbing F. The inquiry may very well contain a description of the object, preferably with pictures and information about its age, condition and the history associated with the object.  

We collect that  

For reasons of space and resources, the museum cannot accept all the objects it is offered.   

When Museum Lolland-Falster is offered an object, the museum's archaeologists, historians and ethnologists assess whether the object should be incorporated into the museum's collections. The assessment takes place i.a. based on questions such as: Does the object have a local connection to Lolland or Falster? Do we know anything about the object's history, use, manufacture or significance? What is the state of preservation of the object?  

Currently, the museum is particularly interested in material related to the following themes:   

  • Ice Age Hunters 
  • The development of the cultural landscape on Lolland and Falster 
  • Climate and energy: Mills
  • Manor life including the Reventlow family and Pederstrup estates 
  • Agricultural related industry (eg sugar industry) 
  • Immigration (Wanderers, Swedes, Poles, Copenhageners, etc.) 
  • Regional historical costumes from before 1900 
  • The welfare state  
  • Infrastructure and crossing history (eg the Bird Escape Line - and the Border Region)  
  • The history of tourism 
  • Nykøbing Castle 
  • Outlying areas, rural areas, decentralization and peripheral issues
