Øm Kloster Museum


Close to Ry, at an isthmus between the lakes Mossø and Gudensø, you will find the ruins of the monastery Øm Kloster. A group of Cistercian monks arrived at this beautiful place in 1172 and build a monastery, which became one of the largest and most important in Jutland. Later, the monastery was torn down, and today, the ruins are part of a museum with exhibitions and a convent garden. See a reconstruction of a grave, belonging to the bishop Elafsen. He was buried in Øm Kloster in 1246 and the original grave is still visible in the church ruin. The museum has a recently restored collection of medical-historical skeleton material from the cemetery of the monastery. The bones derive from from a time before the discovery of penicillin and offer an insight into the deceases of the past and their treatment. In the garden you will find more than 80 different plants from the mediaeval convent garden. And more of these originate from the time, when the monks lived at Øm Kloster.
