For Students


Arbær Museums puts a great emphasis on service to schools and students. Special tours are offered to those groups which are tailored to their need. Visits by school groups can be arranged all year round and is free of charge.

The Museum can only receive one class at a time. It is preferred that large group be split up and room in many of the houses is often small. Groups are advised to come well prepared and in suitable clothing as the museum area is big.
