The Museum Obscurum and the Stiftsmuseet are reducing their opening hours

Tourism and museums have gone hand in hand for more than 10 years, with tourist information housed at the Stiftsmuseet in Maribo and the Museum Obscurum in Nykøbing Falster, but from the first of January 2024 that will end, and this will have consequences for the museums' opening hours.

From now on, the Museum Obscurum is closed for the entire month of January and will be open fewer hours in 2024. It will be most extensive at the Diocesan Museum, where guests can now only meet the Stone Age girl Lola during holidays and during the summer season.

The symbiosis between the museum and the tourist information has meant that the exhibitions could stay open during the periods when there have been few museum visitors, because there were tourists to serve in the tourist information.

For the museum, it is now a question of adapting the opening hours most rationally to the needs of the guests and the times when most visitors come. It must be balanced with the financial resources available to stay open.

However, it is still possible to book a tour at any time, and the museums continue to be opened without restriction to kindergartens, schools and educational institutions by appointment.

Museum Lolland-Falster, on the other hand, is increasing the opening hours in De Gamle Huse – Maribo's open-air museum and Reventlow-Museet Pederstrup, where there is increasing demand and a potential for longer opening hours.

In future, tourists will not search for information in vain. Museum Lolland-Falster's exhibition sites are part of the network of tourism hotspots created by Visit Lolland-Falster, but with limited information and guidance.
