The manor of Sønderskov was built in the Middle Ages as a fortified castle. The present main building is a baroque adaptation of a Renaissance building constructed by the nobleman Thomas Juel 1614-20. For many years the manor was decaying but was saved by a thorough restoration in 1986-92.
The newly established regional museum moved in during this period. The museum is the mediator of the history of the manor building with decorations like unique frescoes, linen tapestries painted with oil paint, and paintings on wood. In the hall you can see the runic stone from Malt by Kongeåen. Other exhibitions are: an archaeological study collection, weaving school and a unique garden historical collection of vases from the sixteen and seventeen hundreds.
All year round there are varying thematic exhibitions as well as the permanent ones. Special arrangements as e.g. Christmas at Sønderskov.
