About Langelands Museum
The building on Jens Winthers Vej was constructed in 1905 and planned as a museum of archaeology. The collections primarily consisted of the personal finds of local merchant, Jens Winther (1863-1955), which he donated to the museum. Jens Winther’s life-long interest in archaeology made him the driving force behind the museum, both scientifically as well as financially, from the time of the foundation to his death in 1955.
The collection is amongst the finest of Danish local museums, containing artefacts recovered by underwater archaeology, the finds from Winther’s own large scale investigations of Neolithic settlements and rich finds from Viking Age burials on Langeland. Today, you can explore some of the artefacts in the museum’s archaological exhibition on Jens Winthers Vej 12.
