Collections and exhibitions tell the story from ancient times to the present.

There will also be special exhibits about current events.

When the museum reopens, it is with 14 exhibitions - 14 stories that you can explore yourself. All the stories are linked to Holstebro. The exhibitions make you wiser about the connections between the West Jutland and the world. For example, one of the exhibits is about the early Stone Age in the area and in a larger perspective.

The Adventurous Loft is the name of the new permanent exhibition. Here you are surprised and challenged by the impressive collage. The museum offers sensual experiences, and you can interact both analogously and digitally. At the same time, there is also room for the traditional museum experience, where you can immerse yourself in the topics.

An important part of Holstebro's local history is about trade, tobacco industry and iron foundry. These topics also immerse themselves in the museum. An entire room is dedicated to the iron foundry's factory history dating back to 1862 in Holstebro. Here, 11 people tell the story, and you can hear sounds from the factory, which were you in the middle of everyday life at the factory. In this way, the industry's past and present are communicated to the museum.

The exhibition "An everyday life in spite" tells about the occupation during World War II, the resistance struggle and daily life.
