Farming, Museum and Attraction in One close to Fredericia
Kringsminde Farm Museum is located in the small village of Egeskov, just a stone’s throw from Fredericia. The current buildings of the farm museum are from the 18th century, but it is known that there have been farms and farming on the site as far back as the 17th century.
The farm museum was used for farming until 1975 when the farm was bought by Fredericia Kommune and later protected. Kringsminde Farm Museum was transformed into a farm museum in 1990 when the buildings at the same time were restored back to their original appearance. Since then the farm has functioned as a farm museum, first under Fredericia Town Museum and now as an independent institution.
