Welcome to the Tycho Brahe Museum

In the center of the small island Ven in the strait between Sweden and Denmark, the eccentric nobleman and astronomer Tycho Brahe built an impressive research center with castle and observatory in the end of the 16th century.

Tycho is seen as one of the most important persons in the history of science and right on the spot where he studied the starry sky more than 400 years ago, the Tycho Brahe museum is situated. It was here Tycho questioned the thousand-year-old laws that were said to govern the universe. It was here he performed calculations that would remain valid for three hundred years.

Welcome to explore the place where modern astronomy was born - on the small island of Ven!
