The Tycho Brahe Museum / The birth of modern science
Welcome to the Tycho Brahe Museum
The Tycho Brahe Museum showcases one of the most important figures in science, the Skansk/Danish nobleman Tycho Brahe. At the end of the 16th century, he had an advanced research centre on the island of Ven with a castle and observatory.
This was groundbreaking work and discoveries in astronomy were made that mainly serve as a basis for our modern world view. At the Museum you can marvel at Tycho in both our exhibit and in the places where he lived and worked.
Two new exhibitions opened at the Tycho Brahe Museum in 2017. In De Nova Stella – a star changes you get to relive the supernova that Tycho Brahe documented in 1572, and in the digital exhibition Insula Hvæna, you meet the 16th-century residents of Ven. Read more
