FÆNGSLET, the prison museum

The Prison Museum

A unique museum experience awaits you at FÆNGLSET in Horsens.
The Prison Museum gives you a rare opportunity to experience the otherwise closed world of a prison. Find out what life behind the walls was like for both inmates and guards throughout history.
Shiver at the axe that was used to behead Jens Nielsen in 1892. Marvel at the audacity of incredible escape artists like Carl Lorentzen. Or smile at the huge pants left behind by Minister of Justice Alberti, who embezzled the government in Denmark's biggest case of fraud.
See the prison cells of different eras, the biker gang section, and the prison chapel as well as thousands of fascinating objects from the unique collection for a thought-provoking and memorable museum experience like no other.

 
The first Wednesday of June and first Wednesdays from September to December the Prison Museum will be open to 9 PM.
