School course

Free school course

Come to school in the old days, where you can learn about life in Denmark in the 1800s, play with Lola – the girl from the Stone Age, who is about life in ancient times, or throw yourself into the creepy True Detective Club, where you have to work with faith and superstition through time. At Museum Lolland-Falster we have education courses for everyone. And it's 100% free!

At the Frilandsmuseet, you have to dress up like old-fashioned schoolchildren. The boys must wear shirts and top hats, and the girls must wear aprons and scarves. Then you have to go straight into the old school and try an old-fashioned school lesson. Then it's time to play and visit the museum's other houses.

In the teaching material, you can work with life in Denmark in the 1800s. Through a playful and role-based approach to history, students can put their own school day into perspective and physically see the difference between the old-fashioned school and their own classroom.

At the station in Maribo is the Stiftsmuseet. Here you can visit the girl Lola and discover the fairytale world she lived in: nature! Lola and her family lived in and with nature, so the exhibition is also built as a journey through the world as it might have looked in Lola's time.

The teaching material introduces the Stone Age by focusing on how the students' everyday life is different from the world Lola lived in. When you arrive, you can either walk around on your own, or you can read the signs on the wooden boards together: It is Lola's "own" voice that narrates.

For the brave there is the Museum Obscurum. Our brand new True Detective Club imaginatively puts the beliefs and superstitions of the past into a contemporary context of fake news and facts. With inspiration from the true crime genre, the students must delve into the occult and work with source criticism.

Fake news today carries some reminders of sorcery rumors and accusations in the past. There are powers in the world that want to destabilize our society through the spread of fake news. With True Detective Club you get a different and exciting way of working with source criticism.
