The Mayor's Yard
The Mayor's Yard is Nyborg's historical museum. The oldest part of the complex of buildings was build in 1601, and as a whole the structures represent a fine example of market town architecture from the 1600's. The museum shows several exhibitions that tell about daily life on eastern Funen throughout history. In addition, there is usually at least one special exhibition.
The Museum has more than 20 rooms for exhibitions. Here you can experience maritime history, the clockmaker's workshop, a big baking oven, the history of beer-brewing, a peasant kitchen from the 1800's, toys throughout history, and so much more.
Some of the rooms house special exhibitions with themes from the history of Eastern Funen, with objects from the museum's large collections.
In 2010, we opened a Children's Museum at The Mayor's Yard. It is a room for children with stories and old-fashioned toys like tops to play with, dress-up clothes and much more.
In the cobble-stoned courtyard there are fine examples of fire wagons, anchors found in Nyborg Fjord and the old smithy, fitted out with the inventory from the original smithy at Mads Lerche's Yard. You can bring a picnic lunch and eat it leisurely in the courtyard, where there are benches and tables.
