An account of his life and activities in words and images
The museum’s exhibition on the life of Tycho Brahe and scientific achievement is housed in the former All Saints Church. The Interior provides a beautiful setting related to the celestial quest to understand how God created the universe. Here are the original objects from Brahe’s operations on Ven in the form of architectural details from Uraniborg and Stjärneborg, a book from the in-house print shop with papers from the coast located mill, as well as part of the wooden wheels that drove the letter to the plant.
In the exhibition there are even two reconstructed measuring instruments, made with great skill by Czech artisans in Prague. Short films about Castle Uraniborg and scientists such as Tycho and Copernicus, which paved the way for our modern world view, are displayed in two smaller salons. Additional models, interactive stations and photographs linking the exhibition to a fascinating overall image of Tycho Brahe’s colorful life and groundbreaking works are also featured
Two new exhibitions opened at the Tycho Brahe Museum in 2017, De Nova Stella and Insula Hvæna.
De Nova Stella – a star changes
Relive Tycho Brahe’s supernova! The museum welcomes you to take a step out into space and a step back in time. From a secluded planet, just outside the constellation Cassiopeia, you can relive a real celebrity. Tycho Brahe documented a supernova in 1572, seen from the earth. The event was groundbreaking, and became the start of a whole new picture of the world.
Insula Hvæna – residents of Ven in the 1500s
An exhibit and window on the 16th century that is not just about noblemen and science. In the digital exhibition Insula Hvæna, we meet the 16th-century residents of Ven – the farmers, fishermen and children of the village.
