Vendsyssel Art Museum
Vendsyssel Kunstmuseum - Vendsyssel Art Museum - has since 2003 been housed in the old Bechs Klædefabrik (Bech's Textile factory) in the centre of Hjørring. The old industrial building was converted into a modern and beautiful art museum in 1984 by the architectural firm C. F. Møller, Copenhagen.
Vendsyssel Historical Museum
Vendsyssel Historiske Museum - Vendsyssel's Historical Museum - has a large collection of local historical treasures. The museum is built from historical buildings, e.g. Skolegade 8, which is the oldest school in Hjørring, built in 1825. The last execution in Hjørring took place in July 1822. A farm owner from the town Sønder Økse near Brovst, named Thomas Thomasen – also known as Bisp, was sentenced to death by decapitation. The Historical Archives at the museum has a notebook that depicts the execution and the removal of the body.
Medicinal plants and herbs
The beautiful museum garden contains a former vicarage garden and a herb garden, where old medicinal plants are grown. You can explore the herb garden on your own, or you can join one of the guided tours.
