Society for Hørsholm and Surroundings, hereafter called The Museum Society, has
the vision of creating an understanding of how the past influences the lives of
the present citizens, and making it possible for the future citizens to find
their historical roots.
Society was founded on the 9th of October 1942 in the midst of World
War II when Denmark was occupied by Germany. The founding assembly took place
at Hørsholm Hotel.
decided that the issue of a museum was of importance to the whole county, so it
was decided that the area of the Museum to be, should consist of the areas that
once was Hørsholm Gods or Hirschholm County, i.e. the parishes of Birkerød,
Blovstrød, Hørsholm and Karlebo.
What we do
to get our Museum, and in 1996 The Museum Society was separated from the Museum
of Hørsholm and Surroundings, and became an independent Society. We have since
then been working actively within historical- and museum issues within our
main objective is still to support The Museum of Hørsholm and Surroundings.
This is done in various ways. We support the museums yearbook financially, and
we occupy 4 of the 9 seats at the museum's board, and we offer our support in
any other way we and the museum decides to be beneficial.
