In the middle of Ven

The Tycho Brahe Museum is located at the site of the Scanian/Danish astronomer's facilities on the island of Ven, in the middle of Öresund, the strait between Scania and Denmark.

The area consists of the exhibitions in the former All Saints Church, the Stjärneborg observatory, a recreated Renaissance garden, a historical playground and a path with models of scalable planets. The remains of Brahe’s castle and the observatory are fixed ancient monuments in the area. 

The Tycho Brahe Museum aims to spread knowledge of Tycho Brahe’s time at Ven and create an interest in his life’s work. This is done through a broad range of educational activities for the general public and schools, as well as through ad hoc events and exhibitions.

At the end of the 16th century, Tycho had an advanced research center with a castle and observatory at Ven. 

Here pioneering work and discoveries were made, mainly in astronomy, which formed the basis of our modern worldview. Come and marvel at Tycho, both in our exhibition and in the places where he lived and worked. 

Tycho's work makes the museum one of the most important sites in the history of science in northern Europe.
