About Us

The Museum of East Zealand is a government-approved museum, which works with modern times' cultural history and geology. The Limestone Landscape is our main theme, which includes the natural and cultural history that relates to the area where limestone is found just beneath the surface. Within this theme, the Cold War fortress Stevnsfort, which has been dug out in the limestone below ground, holds a prominent place.

The museum collects, registers, preserves, researches and communicates within the subject-related and geographic delimitation contained in the Danish Museum Act's Section 15.
